Idk if volume reduct or start of habituation at this point. Either way, I am grateful. I wish this + H/N didn't exist for anyone though. May 24, 2024 at 10:33 AM

      Life is moulding into its new normal. I know I'm going to be okay in the end. It's been a crazy 2 months of wrapping my head around it!

      I'm in objectively quieter rooms out and about than my 50db< city apartment, yet it only blares tenfold when I'm home. Makes no sense to me!

      I'm learning how to work with my T. Trying to stitch together my new normal with this. Habituation is my goal.

      Hearing a lower sort of mechanical whirring noise in my left ear. It's weird the new tones that this condition can throw at you randomly.

      I think about all the people I saw at shows that never wear earplugs. I wanna grab them by their shoulders and tell them it's not worth it.

        I used to play shows without earplugs. When I wasn't touring it was usually 2-3 rehearsals and 2 shows a week standing in front of an 8x10 speaker cabinet. That's eight 10inch speakers. Look up Ampeg svt-810e "the fridge" or sometimes referred to as "the coffin"

        @crescentsky Antigen test manufacturers can't keep up with variants and when they are up to date they aren't sensitive enough. I didn't test positive on an antigen test until day 5 of symptoms but was positive on day 1 with PCR. The same happened with my daughter - negative antigen but positive PCR

        @kingsfan Same thing happens with my housemate - Antigen tests ALWAYS show up negative for him even if he tests positive on a PCR. I think they sometimes just dont work on all people too.

      Having OCD when you have tinnitus is some cruel joke. Constant noise = constant attention = constant obsession = constant rumination. Ugh

        Yeah, most of them are mild cases, just like mine was a few years ago, so it's brushed off by the public as "a little ringing sound" rather than the true suffering it really brings to the severe cases.

        I think a movie about an annoying, ever-present sound would include everything but the annoying, ever-present sound, unfortunately. It's astounding how alien this experience is to others. It can't really be communicated well.

        It's kind of like a throbbing in my ear, some sharp tingly pains. It doesn't happen always from loud noises though I've found, so maybe it is just normal pain from damage from acoustic exposure I've had
