Hey @Crystal_Vibes


That sounds like a lot of stress to have to deal with and a lot of things to have to manage simultaneously. It’s completely understandable to feel highly irritated. Chronic illness can require you to use up all your resources on survival, so often you don’t have the capacity to deal with annoyance.


If you can make the noise issue about you rather than the other person, people are more likely to be receptive. I have some level of misophonia so sounds really get to me. I found it helpful explain what it feels by relating it to sound they can’t tolerate e.g. nails on a chalkboard. Also, active noise cancelling earbuds have been a godsend, especially if you have to go into hospital.


I really hope things start to feel a little easier for you!
