        After a year of Covid quarantine, etc., I'm having difficulty getting used to "normal" noise and activity levels. It all seems so loud and overwhelming now. Perhaps you are experiencing that, too?

        @tracyNYC i think so. When I first developed t everything locked down not too long after. I was able to control my surroundings and now I am thrust back into normal life with its normal volume. I'm still trying to get used to it and not let my anxiety warp my perception.

      Why do delayed spikes have to exist, isn't that kind of sick? Anytime we are exposed to loud we have to wonder for weeks

        Did you get a delayed spike after your friend's party?

        @convolution so far so good. Haven't noticed it being louder. I know I'm paying attention to it more so that's annoying, but it's suspiciously ok.

        I have a friend who does not have tinnitus (he actually has hearing damage) and he said the theater was way too loud, even for him. Also, pro tip, if you ask an attendant to turn the volume down they most likely will

      My normal t sound mutes itself for a semi second before fleeting t (high eee) then gradually turns down+ transfers to reg t? So it CAN mute?

        My bilateral T does that too. It could be completely quiet and then it will weather and be really loud and then get quiet again and then really loud. It can do it within minutes. It changes constantly. And I have no hearing loss in that air. The air that I have hearing loss and it’s a more steady town that never changes

        The spikes are the real enemy. We would all be fine with just a minor ring. Not sure if that's your face in your profile, but can we use that beauty to make a cure? It would be 100% effective.

    Tinnitus Since:
    1/2019
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    Concert/lifelong music abuse
    :cyclops:Why hello there, and welcome....
    To the house of cicadas that never shut up and to the Television set to static which resides in my head and never turns off.
    I'm writing this "about me" in a moment of sustained anxiety and over whether I'll spike so that should already tell you a lot about the struggles of tinnitus and me. Sometimes it's hard to tell who is more important in this equation the t or me?
    I hope it is me.
    26 years old and as of June 8 at 1am (the time I am writing this to you dear reader) my tinnitus is moderate. Subject to change. Indefinitely.
    I hope that in some ways we can foster a sense of community here and in the least have a support group for a symptom that many don't understand just how debilitating and isolating and it can be.
    I wasn't always this scared or this doom and gloom, in fact here is a real life pic of me before getting tinnitus ->:rockingbanana:. Yep. That idiotic going to concerts, clubs, you name it. If it was loud- I was there. Never wearing or knowing how important war protection is. Young and reckless and thinking tinnitus was for older people.
    If you ever need me shoot me a message I will try to respond in a timely manner. I may forget that I opened it though and will respond months later when it's no longer any use to you. But I will try! :p
