it's fairly common for people to get misophonia for other people's chewing noises. but does anyone ever get misophonia for YOUR OWN chewing, as I do? as you can imagine, this can be both extremely stressful and inescapable.

if you get this, how do you deal with it? I'm having a hell of a time with it - I just want to stop eating altogether!

Hi
I do not suffer from that myself but i would guess that you would have to use distraction techniques to help you focus on something other than your chewing. Have you tried listening to music through headphones while you are eating?
Hopefully some other members will come across your thread and offer their advice.
