S6E4 - Annie W.
Like my previous guest, Annie is also a student of neuroscience who entered the field to make an impact on misophonia, inspired by her own experiences. And her experiences have been unrelenting, but I was constantly struck by her resilience. It seems every time her life and misophonia took a small step forward, something quickly puts her two steps back. We talk about chaos in the home, negative responses from family, stepfamily and classmates at school, deep internalized shame, physiologically shutting down for months at a time, etc... But she braved through, usually completely on her own, but also finding allies when she needed them the most.
