        I know that feeling, buddy. Though usually mine is loud during the evening. And he tends to be quieter in autumn/winter.

      Waking up with tinnitus each morning feels like preparing to go into a street fight with both hands tied behind my back.

      5 years ago I couldn't handle being in a particular classroom at school because the fan aggravated my tinnitus, now that same fan masks it.

      Keep this in mind if you want to conquer tinnitus...You can't ignore something that you love or something that you hate...

        If you don't feed it, it will starve and lose its power over you...This takes time, patience and a perspective shift.

        I hope to get to the point where I can give it less attention. It's going to take time....

        You’ll get there. The best advice I can give you is to put one foot in front of the next. Tinnitus was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to deal with, now it has no power over me. It just takes time...hang in there

      If you can hang in there for 6 months (granted that feels like an eternity when your brain is buzzing)...you will find peace once again.

        For some it takes much longer then 6 months to find peace (habituate) I am nearing 12 months in, and I am not habituated yet.....just saying, I would swap 6 months with 1-2 years.

        Getting through the first month was so hard and people new to t should know that's normal. In time you'll get better at dealing with it.

        I'm hitting 18 months and I'm not habituated. Though I am better than I've been and I might be starting the process now.

      If you allow it, your brain will figure out how to subjugate the noise. Seems like the end the world when you get it but...

      Sunrises, season changes and this very loud sound in my head which becomes unnoticeable when I don't feed it any negative energy

      Sort of like, one of the few constant things in my life...

      A year ago I would have sold my soul for some relief from this miserable condition. Suddenly, I am starting to find it sort of relaxing...

      Tinnitus happened...I survived it...now I draw upon the strength I gained in order to deal with challenging people... "Human Tinnitus"
