I just want to take a second out to thank everybody for the outpouring of good will and kindness I’ve been privy to over the last 24 hours. Whenever one of these stories about me and my misophonia come out (ICYMI: here’s the link), I worry about the internet and the way things get with commenters and such, but so far it’s been all empathy and love-branches.
I’d like especially to thank my fiancée, Ana, who is constantly supportive, and all of my fellow misophones, including ones I’ve known for decades who didn’t know we both suffered the same way. This connection to all of you is so important to me, and I know that even though there’s nothing good about misophonia, we can take heart that we’ve found each other and know that we’re all not crazy, or if science proves that we are (and I think we’d gladly all take whatever pill proves it), we’re at least not alone.
I know this is just the beginning of this whole thing — it could be that the commenters just haven’t gotten around to it yet, and I’m in for a hard time — but I wanted to say something warm and fuzzy while I felt it.
