The Misophonia Podcast

Adeel Ahmad

Candid conversations with people who live with Misophonia. Misophonia is a disorder in which there is a strong sensitivity to certain sounds. A person with misophonia feels rage and an inability to focus on anything but that sound. It feels like a fight-or-flight response. Host Adeel Ahmad has misophonia and interviews other "misophones" from around the world. All episodes are edited to be more sensory-friendly including equalization and brown noise.

Maja - Exploring Misophonia's Roots and Healing Journey

Maja - Exploring Misophonia's Roots and Healing Journey
Maja is a college student in Connecticut studying psychology. We spend a lot of time talking about her past, and the strained relationships with her family members that she had growing up and how they were impacted by misophonia. We hear about her father’s volatility and trouble with alcohol, the difficulty in being understood and accommodated at home. We talk about life at school and with friends and how it’s difficult sometimes to know how much to share. And we spend a lot of time discussing therapy and healing from modalities such as parts work and inner child healing, mind-body regulation and how she is exploring various sides of spirituality. I love these episodes that delve into the childhood links to misophonia. It comes up a lot and in my opinion is being ignored by the research community in favor of surface-level approaches that can be delivered in a fixed period of time.   ---Order "Sounds like Misophonia" - by Dr. Jane Gregory and ISponsored by the personal journaling app I developed:Basal - hellobasal.comFor iOS and AndroidWriting prompts and summaries for your journal entries by AI from the perspective of a therapist.Web: https://misophoniapodcast.comEmail: hello@misophoniapodcast.comSend me any feedback!

Kresta (2024) - Overcoming Misophonia through Understanding HSP
This week I’m bringing back a guest who has been one of the most popular guests on the show. Kresta is a trama therapist and founder of Misophonia Freedom Lab. If you recall Kresta had misophonia and says she has been able to overcome it. We talk about that of course, but we also focus on the idea of HSP, highly-sensitive people. There is overlap between the two and I think it’s always illuminating to learn about HSP to inform misophonia, and vice versa.Kresta also talks about some exciting projects like the Misophonia Freedom Project which is looking to gather data from people who say they have overcome their misophonia and try to find patterns and pathways that might be useful for others.   Kresta's blog on HSP: https://www.misophoniafreedomlab.com/post/how-understanding-trait-of-highly-sensitive-person-can-help-us-understand-and-cope-with-misophonia   Blog on her "Love letter to rage": https://www.misophoniafreedomlab.com/post/a-love-letter-to-rage-you-were-so-misunderstood-i-m-sorry  Misophonia Freedom Project: https://www.misophoniafreedomlab.com/about-1 Misophonia Freedom Project (Sara Bidler's website):  http://www.authenticlivingts.com/misophonia-freedom-project.html   ---Order "Sounds like Misophonia" - by Dr. Jane Gregory and ISponsored by the personal journaling app I developed:Basal - hellobasal.comFor iOS and AndroidWriting prompts and summaries for your journal entries by AI from the perspective of a therapist.Web: https://misophoniapodcast.comEmail: hello@misophoniapodcast.comSend me any feedback!
