So sorry to hear you struggle with misophonia in conditions which exacerbate the ED. My trigger is the sound of throat clearing. IMO if exposure therapy was a solution, we'd be cured by now.
For now your best path of action may be to identify those who trigger you the most/worst and either avoid them or introduce them to misophonia passively (i.e. with a non-accusatory tone of voice). That's what I did with my mother whose constant throat-clearing was close to genuinely breaking my sanity - I explained misophonia and its consequences for the sufferer, she understood and over time replaced throat clearing with coughing, which I don't mind.

I hear you. I've been violent to people making chewing and slurping sounds. Any sort of noise gets me pissed. Be it chewing, snoring, slurping, throat clearing, coughing etc. I hate them all. And exposure therapy does shit for me. I've been dealing with it by turning the tv on as background noise while eating with people. And I can't eat alone either so...
So I suggest you use some kind of background noise to concentrate and try to ignore the disgusting noises. I also put my earbuds on when I'm working so I can ignore the noises people make. Most of the time I don't even listen to anything and only use them as a way to cancel the noise aka simple earplugs.
