Oh hey, I totally forgot to post this last week when people actually told me about it. Apparently the ABC news program 20/20 recently ran a segment on misophonia. (For more about our experiences with misophonia as a family, read here and here.) It was really, really excellent. C said it was the most accurate picture of misophonia he's yet seen in the media.
Here's part 1:
And part 2:

I could easily see C's case getting as severe as that of the girl in the first segment had we not started in with the neurotherapy and neurotransmitter support when we did. In truth, even with all those interventions, we are about 80% of the way there on his worst days.
HUGE thanks to ABC News and 20/20 for such a well-done segment on this still little-known but truly life-altering disorder. And even bigger thanks for releasing a safe-for-misophonics version of the segment with most of the trigger sounds edited out (those are the ones I've embedded/linked here).
