It actually works!! I’m finally misophonia-free after 35 years…

Amazingly this app actually works. I’ve had misophonia for about 35 years and this is the *only* thing that has ever permanently eased it. (I’ve tried everything before – only noise-cancelling headphones playing white/pink noise helped, but that was only ‘avoidance’, not ‘cure’). I found the app to be a very useful tool to help understand my own trigger response mechanism; with very short trigger times (~200 milliseconds) I was aware of my physical reaction phase but didn’t suffer the subsequent emotional miso rage/crash. Any longer than that short duration initially triggered my full miso reaction but after only two training sessions I can listen to a sustained (‘brutal’ even) blast of my primary trigger sound with only a barely perceptible emotional reaction. Truly amazing!! Once you understand the initial physical reaction you can retrain yourself to relax. I think this is key to proper use of the app. This works because no physical reaction = no subsequent emotional miso reaction a split-second after. With the help of this app this has been the first time I have fully understood what is going on. I never even knew before that I had *any* physical reaction at all – it seemed purely emotional. Knowledge is power I guess!! Although it is still early days I feel that this app has already cured me of this devastating disease. For example I’ve noticed that out in public is now a pleasure rather than the living hell that it always has been previously… Many many thanks to the developers for creating such an incredibly useful tool!!
