I still have no clue whats wrong with me

I am still a child, actually. I'm only 11 but none of this is what im looking for. i am very sensative to noises such as jeans and swooshy coats. it does not affect me when i do these things though. something about me is just not right in the head. im weird, im a freak, and I feel like nobody understands me. If you do, please tell me, because im low on options now.

This sounds like Misophonia to me. I too have a lot of trouble with certain sounds.

Speak to someone you trust

Hi,
It's not uncommon for everyone of us to have bits and pieces that confuse us but some of us have lots of them- my son does. We have come a long way but I won't say we have decoded the situation. I think it's great that you are trying to understand your situation. I am a psychiatrist. The way I see it, it would be greatly helpful for you to have a chat with an adult that you trust- it may be a school teacher/ social worker, doctor or a family member. Sometimes, local kids helplines, hospitals can also help. Whatever, they help you with, right now it seems like a very frustrating situation you are at. So, I hope you will find the help you seek. For my son, there is no magic answer. It's been strategies based on general advise as well as trial and error. I wish you well and will pray for peace of mind in this journey you are undertaking.

Possibly misophonia
by: Anonymous

I have a very similar problem, being a strong disliking of particular sounds, but only when other people make them. If you happen not to have any other signs of general auditory sensitivity (as another comment suggests, you should go through the checklist with a parent or guardian or healthcare provider to determine this), it seems likely you have misophonia. If so, I wouldn't recommend ASMR as you may find it wildly unpleasant- I certainly do. You definitely aren't alone though, and even if you get clinically diagnosed with a sensory disorder, that doesn't mean you're a freak. Misophonia is still being studied, but there are some therapeutic treatments that should be able to help you.

Never a Freak

It sounds like you have SPD, sensory issues. Go to your mom or an adult who you trust. Use the "Symptoms Checklist" to help you understand where your sensitivities lie. Praying for you.
