Most of us are pretty aware of the almost automatic reaction or discomfort we experience when we hear noises such as nails on a chalkboard, or other loud and disruptive noises. Thankfully, most people don’t have to deal with this uncomfortable scenario on a day-to-day basis. But some do with this on a daily basis. Those people are dealing with something called Misophonia.

On this episode of Calm, Cool and Connected, Dr. Fedrick is joined by Thomas Dozier. He is the President of the Misophonia Institute, and he is going to help us understand what exactly it is, and the impact it has on someone’s daily life.
