I also know I need to start taking better care of myself - including somehow lessening my stress. I've learned over the years that the more stress I have in my life, the more sensitive I am to triggers. Not sure how much I'm going to be able to mitigate my stress at work, given my position, but hopefully I can be more self aware when my stress is going into critical mode.
I know I need to do a better job at keeping fresh earplugs with me (something I slacked off a bit of late). Occasionally I've been triggered during my choral rehearsals and just stood there(with dagger eyes) trying to bear through it but I think I will try to start removing myself from trigger exposures when they happen. I've already mentioned my misophonia to some of my choral mates, so hopefully they'll be understanding.
Let's just hope that 2017 is a hell of a lot better than 2016 was. 😊
