Not too much out of the ordinary has been going on with my misophonia. For the most part, I've been enjoying the peace and quiet of being alone in the office, which has allowed me to keep focused on the many project "fires" that have been pulling me in all directions. I still experience the occasional trigger at the supermarket by someone whistling, but I've come to accept that as a part of life.
A new extracurricular endeavor that I've embarked upon may be exposing me to more triggers again. I've joined an acapella choral group - which has been a lot of fun but, as with any musically creative groups, it often means a lot of fidgety creative people who either whistle or tap their hands/feet/props - especially during down time when we're not singing. This will certainly be an interesting experience.
The strangest thing for me with this group is that I can't understand how so many of the singers chew gum EVEN WHILE SINGING in the rehearsal. I've already given my section leader a "heads up" about my misophonia in case I feel the need to put my fingers in my ears or walk out of the room entirely (although I didn't go into too much detail). I'm just praying I won't have to stand anywhere near, or in eyeshot, of any gum chewers. (Ugh!)
