    So after a reasonable amount of research I’ve diagnosed myself with Misophonia.
    I attack my partner for every movement he makes… apparently.
    I didn’t realise it was a ‘thing’ for me until someone in work commented-
    ‘Haha, that’s really funny, she’s got a tapping phobia!’
    They all tapped together and took the p*ss out of me and I could have walked out on my career.
    Just about held it together and went home with fake period pains.
    I’m glad it’s got a name but worried it’s not recognised.
    Does anyone else feel my pain?

    Might it be sensory dysphoria, I believe it is called? You might want to try a search on the site for articles.

    I’ve found that I have developed an increased sensitivity to certain colors that I didn’t have until the last few years…to the point that I can’t stand to stay on a site with those colors. Like you, I invested in reading and asking questions on this site. I’m hoping combination therapy will help calm my responses.

    It’s good you asked your question and are trying to find a solution to calm your responses, too. I expect you aren’t alone with this particular sensitivity.
