Praise for Sound-Rage:

Finally some solid information on this life-altering disorder! 
This book offers long-sought and hard-to-find information about a disorder that causes incredible difficulties for people who live with it. If a book like this had existed when I was younger, it would have made a huge difference for me.

Organized following a sequence for building a broad stroke picture of the disorder, there are three sections.

In Section I, Symptoms, Stories and Diagnoses, the author describes the life of a “Sound-Rage” sufferer as she confronts triggers throughout the day. You will read testimonies and stories of people who have the disorder ordered in such a way as to cohesively describe critical aspects of the disorder. The section includes a short questionnaire as an informal assessment tool for people who think they might have the disorder. What’s the Diagnosis” is an investigation that evaluates and compares the APA DSM-IV psychiatric listing of all known anxiety disorders to the symptoms of “Sound-Rage”.

Section II Neurobiology delves into the neurological study and explores how the brain processes information, specifically the triggers. Brain parts are examined for their role in the transmission and processing of a trigger from first entering the brain to the point when the sufferer’s body seeks the flight response.  Take an in-depth look at brain circuitry and multi-sensory processing. This section explains from a neurological perspective how triggers expand from one or two auditory triggers to many sound, visual and olfactory triggers.

The daily onslaught of discomfort generated in “Sound-Rage” is exacerbated by the thoughts and associations that accompany the anger and pain and this is addressed in Section III Emotions, Cognitions and Therapies Explore explanations for why emotionally laden responses exist within the domain of the disorder, especially anger as a function of pain and how they contribute to the brain’s assessment of new sounds, visuals and smells as triggers. A discussion of appropriate and viable therapies is included.
