      I want to say I can only hear the T now in a quiet room! Knock on wood but the improvement feels so good

        Congratulations!

        If you ever stop hearing it, even in a quiet room with earplugs in, please let us know.

        I plan to stick around here as long as I have it. Hope I can write a success story someday

      Anniversary with T was yesterday. I tried to do something fun instead of thinking about it. Hopefully by next May 19th it’ll be a whisper

        I LOVEEEE the sound of projectors, it perfectly masks my t at collage. It’s not too loud or quiet, perfect!

      Playing video games is one of the only ways I can fully ignore the tinnitus. It takes almost my full attention and it’s kind of soothing.

      Small update: some days I don’t notice it, some days I hyper-focus on it. Finally can fall asleep without a noise in the bg to distract me

        I am very happy to hear this!

        Did it fade, or did you habituate?

        I still have ringing, it’s quiet now but I’m no longer at the point where I obsess over it. I expect it to fade so here’s hoping!

      Tinnitus has become quiet hissing/crackling in the past week. Hopefully some sort of hurdle has been reached

        Dude I have Severe Tinnitus. It is so bad. I dont understand why you want to have this. If you want to listen to music, listen to it over the laptop.

      I feel I’m hearing a new sound, not as high pitched as before

        My sound has been replaced, more hissy. Less loud but still very much ‘there’.

        This is a really good sign. It is a major improvement. It is also possible that when T gets quieter, you begin hearing a hiss instead of a high pitch tone. If you wear earplugs or ear muffs, you might hear a high pitch tone again (because your ear protection makes it easier to hear it). This is what had happened to me once.
