Misophonia can be scary, confusing and upsetting for the people around us. I get a steady stream of emails from people each month asking: “What can I do? How can I help?”
There is an army of mums, dads, brothers, sisters, partners and best friends who want to understand and be there and help, but don’t know where to start.
The problem is, with little guidance or professional help on offer, we’re all desperately trying to feel our way around a disorder about which very little is known and let’s face it, it’s hard.
The good news is, if you’re close to someone with misophonia there are things you can do to help.
But before we get started a quick public service announcement…
If you’re the parent, sibling, lover or friend of someone who has misophonia, thank you. The fact that you’re reading this magazine shows, beyond measure, that you care.
Thank you for being there and for wanting to understand and wanting to help.
