word or phrase to add to your army.
This is going to be a post that might make you crazy! It might make you angry! It might set you off!
This is a post about irritating noises.
Do you ever get upset when you hear someone chewing loudly, snapping their gum, or clicking their fingernails on a table? If certain noises bother you tremendously, you may suffer from misophonia (miss-uh-fone-ee-uh).
Misophonia is a disorder that causes people to be very sensitive to certain noises. While most people don't like the sound of fingernails on a chalkboard, a few really don't like sounds that might not bother someone else. These people are called misophonics (miss-o-fone-ix). They actually suffer when they hear certain sounds. It is not fun.
I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
