S7E2 - Claire M.
I really enjoyed this conversation because it hit upon a lot of things I’ve been thinking about related to misophonia and possible roots in childhood experiences. Claire and I talk about her watching fights as a young girl between her dad and older brother, both very temperamental people. We talk about mental health not being taken seriously by her family, even at a very low point (warning to folks that there is some discussion of suicidal ideation). We talk about the effects of those experiences in her life now as an adult - some negative but some actually positive. And we end on a note that I’ve been hearing more and more about lately, and that is the appreciation for the higher level empathy that misophonia can give many of us towards other people’s feelings and experiences.
