A new or undiscovered word to many, misophonia is condition in which certain sounds provoke strong negative emotional reactions in people (anger, panic, or disgust) to a person with the disorder. One or more "trigger" sounds can cause these emotions. Common trigger noises include (but are not limited to) chewing, snorting, slurping, whispering, whistling, shushing, lip-smacking, and sneezing. Misophonia tends to develop in children and gets progressively worse over time. If someone with misophonia tells you to stop whistling, slurping, ect, stop. If you don't stop, you are a twatmuffin and we can't be friends.
"Why does Alex get angry when I whistle?"
"He has Misophonia. It's a little like OCD but with certain noises."
"Well, I'm not a twatmuffin so I'll try to work on not whistling around him."

For people with a condition that some scientists call misophonia, mealtime can be torture. The sounds of other people eating — chewing, chomping, slurping, gurgling — can send them into an instantaneous, blood-boiling rage.
Misophonia, literally "hatred of sound", is a rarely diagnosed neuropsychiatric disorder in which negative emotions (anger, flight, hatred, disgust) are triggered by specific sounds.1 The sounds can be loud or soft.2 The term was coined by American neuroscientists Pawel Jastreboff and Margaret Jastreboff and is sometimes referred to as selective sound sensitivity syndrome.4
