Connect To Other Sufferers

Misophonia International has launched two initiatives to help people get together. While they are just being created now (and will take time to fill-up and be used) we hope that in the future we can help sufferers engage with each other (and subsequently get connected to the supporters/professionals that they will eventually seek). Our site will include a social-media format to allow users to engage, as well as a chat room. The chat room is accessible via android, iOS, and many other platforms through standard IRC clients.

One benefit of this platform is profiles — you can fill out a portfolio that includes misophonia and its impact on your life. Provide your triggers, your story, and only link it to people that you believe will understand. Or, don’t share it at all and merely connect with other sufferers on the site. The choice is yours. You can also make friends, send messages, and engage in thoughtful discussions through forum-like behaviours. Our goal is to mix advocacy with community, and both of these have a heavy saturation of science and research.
