      Hi Albapv, I saw in the positivity thread you no longer need to sleep with a masker. Could you share your journey/progression?

      I am new to T, and a light sleeper. The first week was hell. I am currently using trazadone (sleeping pills) and brown noise to have not-so-great sleep at night. I aspire to get to the point where I can sleep with out pills or a masker. :)

      Ty in advance :)

        Hello! I have never slept with masking (tried, but made me very nervous). At the worst times I took alprazolam 0.25mg. I put lavender scent on the pillow so I could 'focus' on other sense. I also went to sleep later, to be more tired and try ‘not to sleep’ once in bed (its called 'paradoxical intention'). Have you had tinnitus for a long time? what caused it?

        I've had my tinnitus for a little longer than a month. As for the cause, it's currently unknown. I don't think it's acoustic trauma and/or hearing loss based on the tests conducted so far.

        I'll take a look into paradoxical intention, thanks!

        Were you at all worried about developing a dependency on alprazolam? I'm trying to avoid benzos and z-drugs if possible.
