I really don't know whats wrong with me. It started when I was about 11. I moved from a very nice house in a nice town to a much smaller house in a shittier town after my parents had some financial trouble. The whole thing was pretty stressful for me. At about that time, or a little bit after, something clicked in my head. This is will sound pretty damn wierd, but suddenly I couldn't stand the sound of someone eating. It is like someone is scraping their finger nails on a chalk board, but 100x worse. I don't have as much of a problem with it with people eating near me in public, but more with the people in my close family. It is so bad that I cannot eat in the same room as anyone else in my house. I used to ask my family to stop eating when i'd go into the kitchen to get a snack, but I realized how fucked up that was, so now I just stay in my room for most of the day and if someone is in the kitchen I'll wait for them to leave. This has been going on for about 6 years now, and it has only gotten worse. I did see a psychiatrist for a few months, but he just looked at me like I was nuts(i dont blame him, this shit is pretty wierd), and he prescribed some pill called "paxil." i took the pill for several months, but it did more harm than help. that shit is intense. Other than that he didnt really ever give me a diagnosis to my problem. Some info about me/my family: I am 17, mildy overweight (6'1, 210lbs), I am generally a loner and have never had many friends. I have a younger brother. I have a younger adopted sister who I absolutely cannot stand, and is a big catalyst for stress in my life. My parents have been married for 25 years. At the time this started, my mother was very overweight, but she had her stomach stapled about two years ago and is much slimmer and healthier now. I don't know if any of this has anything to do with my problem, but what the hell. has anyone ever heard of a case even a little bit similar to this or am i just completely fucked up in the head?
