In times when I experience those types of triggers, such as on the plane (as seen in the above photo - and yes, I didn't hesitate taking that photo to use as an example), if I couldn't position myself or my hair to
Anyway, on the flight back, I was fortunate that the cabin I was in wasn't full. Before the plane took off, I noticed a couple with a very energetic toddler sitting right behind me. (Well, the parents were TRYING to get him to sit still.) I knew the kid's rambunctiousness during the flight would bother me, so I decided to switch seats to two rows in front of me to get further away from the family. That worked for a little bit until we were just about to take off and the person sitting behind me kept fiddling with the tray table - pushing my seat forward and backward and sending annoying vibrations all against me. I wanted to move up one more seat, but had to wait until after we took off and reached cruising altitude. Not only did the flight attendant notice when I finally did move, but there was a pilot sitting in the seat across from me who saw the double move too. I explained to both of them that I had a medical condition that made me sensitive to certain sounds as well as the feeling of people pushing against my seat. They seemed sympathetic (I think) and when the pilot mentioned some things bother him like that too, I gave him one of the business cards I made for this site. As I mentioned before in earlier posts, even if it's just enlightening one person... I'll do my best to spread awareness about misophonia as much as I can.
On another note, if you haven't checked it out already, I added two new poll questions to the SenseHaven home page (and moved the old one to the Past Polls page). Please take a moment to respond to them.
