Common trigger sounds can include:
• Eating or lip-smacking
• Clicking, crinkling or tapping
But any sound can be a trigger.
Do these or other sounds cause a sudden strong negative reaction in you? Do you know someone who becomes really irritated after hearing a certain sound and you can’t understand why? Perhaps these sounds fill you or a family member with rage and a need to escape the source of the sound as quickly possible. Maybe you’ve even stopped going out or have seen your friends go out of their way to avoid these trigger sounds.
