Bonus Post: Holiday Survival Guide Teaser

I was fortunate enough to write for Misophonia International’s Holiday Guide. I was asked to provide you all with a teaser of what I wrote, so here you go. 🙂 Do consider purchasing this as it will help in furthering research for misophonia.

“The holidays are a very difficult time for some people, especially for those suffering with misophonia. With Christmas celebrations just around the corner—for those who celebrate it—those with misophonia may be dreading any family gatherings and/or Christmas dinners, as well as people gathering around to open presents. They may be wondering what to do, and how they’re going to survive another Christmas bombarded with triggers. I’ve compiled a list of what you can do to survive. I am aware that there are a lot of people who have family members who don’t know about misophonia, or who do know, but make you stay anyway. Regardless, I hope what I have to say helps you in some way.”

      I don’t know if there’s a digital download, but I purchased a few hard copy magazine issues from Misophonia International, and they are high quality. Worth the amount of money in my opinion. 🙂 I do understand the convenience of digital though. Happy Holidays to you too! ??

        Hey everybody! Most certainly a digital download.

        Our magazine is available as a 2016 bundle (4 issues)
        Currently $6 (each issue is usually $4)

        and the holiday guide is $2!

        Happy Holidays!

    Good for you, Sharon. You are taking this condition to a whole new level. I will check out zmisophonia International. Your kindness in being so open about this is wonderful. Although people close to me know my “sounds”, I still struggle with naming it public ally.
