This post is going to focus on one particular person who has come into my life just this year. The reason for this is because I had a particularly rough few days, and thinking of the memories we have made together in such a short amount of time has kept me from thinking too negatively. I have been battling a recurring migraine and haven’t had the chance to get hardly any work done because of it. I’ve also been going to bed much earlier than usual because I have been getting tired earlier. This isn’t a bad thing in the sense of getting much needed sleep, but it does prevent me from working at hours I am comfortable working at. I will refer to this new(ish) friend as M.
M responded to the Misophonia and Positive Vibes event, and I will post his response below. The event allowed people to talk about misophonia and talk about the people they knew with misophonia. M talked about me when he posted his response for the event:
I forgot when or how I met M (because my memory sucks), but I know it was this year. I also remember that it was through the choir I participate in at my local church. He might have come to hang out with everyone after rehearsal was over and I saw him there. However it was, I met him, and the random things we talk about on Facebook messenger, the personal talks we get in to, and talking to him about the Moana movie and gushing over it has gotten me through this week in particular.
M has proven to me that he is someone I can trust. I read his words, and all I could think about was how lucky I was to find yet another person who is supportive and non-judgmental. I can be real and open with him because I believe it when he says he’d help me if I got triggered. For instance, we went to a restaurant in Mexicali called Pampas with several other friends, and while we were eating, M occasionally asked if I was ok and if I was enjoying myself. When I told him yes, I wasn’t lying or trying to tough it out. I was actually having a great time.
If I was to describe him is one sentence, it would be this: “He’s the kind of person who makes you forget about all the bad for awhile.”
I’m cutting this post short because I am very tired and have finals to prepare for. Talking to M was one of the highlights of the week thus far, especially when battling my migraine plus triggers. I am very lucky to have surrounded myself with people, especially M, who would never use misophonia against me.
See you next week. <3
