Empath (and Nutrition) Humor – Misophonia…Part I

Frustrating it may be at times, I suffer from Misophonia – that’s just the reality.  I also have more generalized sensitivity to noise and to light – fun stuff in a crazy, overly stimulating world!  I try not to let on too much, but anyone close to me knows how extreme it can be (and it isn’t something I can control.)

I love my heavy metal, and I love light streaming into a room…but sometimes noise and light can be too much, and I either need a much darker “sanctuary” or I need ear plugs.  Or both!  I certainly have endeavored to desensitize over time but it’s just something I’ve had to resign myself to…

But that goddamn microwave beep. . . Microwave tones at ALL…they drive me nuts! And I’m always steaming vegetables, making eggs, or reheating my chicken so it isn’t like I have choice!  Still…there’s always preemptively stopping the countdown so I don’t have to listen to a MULTITUDE of beeps in succession (yes, nails-on-a-chalkboard for this chick!)

Empath Humor – Introvert At A Party

Truth…

I’m good at being social – My Geminian, former performing athlete self seems to have that mastered but…it doesn’t always jive with what I WANT to be doing.  I’d rather hang out with the cats most of the time.  Frustratingly, they tend to be as introverted as I am!

Empath Humor – Psyching Up For Plans

This is SO INFJ.  I have to do this with everything from trips to evening events… It’s almost ridiculous but given that there are memes and quotes about it…well, I feel a whole lot better I’m not the only one! *LOL*

Empath Humor – Voicemail

I’ve done this – which applies to introverts, empaths, INFJ types 1,000% – so many times I can’t count!

I’m NOT a phone person.  I don’t want people to call.  I don’t want messages.  I don’t even want notifications of messages!
