Thanks for the message.

You sound like a nice guy in your sound clip. I'm not surprised. You sound like a nice guy in your writing here as well.

I learned a new word from you. I didn't know what misophonia was. Thanks.

Thank you, it's a condition common in people with autism / aspergers like myself, but that isn't a requirement for it. We actually had national news coverage of it a week ago, so theres obviously some awareness campaign ongoing.

misophonia is the fucking worst. i actually almost had a bit of a breakdown over it when i was working because i had a colleague who was hard of hearing and would eat at his desk and just made the most disgusting mouth noises. that grad school stressful job... i almost lost my fuckin mind.

the other one is whispering S sounds. awful.

Oh god I know, I had to edit my audio file to remove the godawful tongue click / wet mouth noises. That sounds so gross just as text, urgh.

There's the whole ASMR videos scene too with the rare one that is fine, but like 99% of it is triggering. There's whole YT channels that I really want to watch and like, but just have to switch off after a minute.

i CANNOT do ASMR with any kind of talking. the fucking whispering voices make me want to stab myself. the only ones i tolerate are the tiny food ones haha.

I love the videos where they do something practical, like making artisinal food etc. Though maybe that moves beyond ASMR.
