      Too much noise
      I remember staying at a friend's house in the high desert in California. It was so quiet and dark. I could hear and feel my heart beat. Much the same as the experience recorded here. This was before tinnitus. It's actually a part of how I know when it started! It took a while to fall asleep. I was used to listening to the cars on the parkway half a mile away and other small, quiet night noises of my neighborhood. But this was so totally quiet! A bit unnerving.

      But, how is it for the Deaf! It's always quiet for them! Unless they have the ringing too. I know a couple that the only sound they hear is ringing...
