From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Misophonia, literally “hatred of sound”, is believed to be a neurological disorder characterized by negative experiences (anger, flight, hatred, disgust) triggered by specific sounds.
This Blog chronicles our adventures with my youngest son who suffers from this disorder.

Visit With The Neurologist
Post to Parent Support Group - Thursday, October 10
I had good news from the Neurologist but I will share our progress so
far: Car ride over was 35-40 minutes of pure hell. The kid hates car
rides and did not want to leave the house. He was put in the car in his
underwear as he refused to get dressed. This is how we brought him in
when the doctor was ready to see him. As expected our son was
uncooperative to say the least.
My husband & I were asked
several questions about my son's history. My son had his eyes looked at
and his heart listened to. He refused to be weighed and have his height
measured. The doctor is ordering up an MRI (for which my son will have
to be sedated) and she wants to have him tested to see if he is on the
Autism Spectrum. We do have a psychiatric evaluation scheduled tomorrow.
Ride home was equally horrific. I hate torturing my son even though he hates us right now and wants us dead.
Where I see this going: My son will have to be put on medication, and I
will be surprised if he is not hospitalized tomorrow after his
psychiatric evaluation. If the MRI does not show anything, this will end
up being a psychiatric issue. If this is Autism, also psychological /
I have a deeper appreciation for parents of
Autistic children as they still don't know what causes it. I had a dose
of reality today of what we all face. I also need to remember that
doctors don't appreciate parents that come in with their own diagnosis. I
am no longer optimistic that we will get help on the Neurology front.
I have not given up but this is going to be a tough battle on all
fronts. I'll keep you posted after the Psychiatrist visit tomorrow.
