How Not To Lose Your Shit Travelling With Misophonia

I have a condition called Misophonia.

Misophonia is a condition in which a person reacts extremely negatively to certain sounds that most people take little or no notice of.  It’s not easy to live with, let alone travel with. Here’s what it is, how I deal with it, and where to find support.

It couldn’t have been further from the truth.
