Hi to all, I have a mild T easily maskable by nature sounds, white noise or radio but what I noticed any sounds just irritates me. Be it masking sounds, radio or my T, no difference. I don't have H but it is as if my irritation related to T was moved to irritation by sounds in general. Sounds never bothered me in the past before T, I listened to music a lot, went to noisy places, almost always had radio or TV on and this was natural to me. In general I was never obsessed about being in silent environment. Now it looks as if my desire to hear silence, which I can't experience, is subconciously so strong that I am not really relieved by masking. I don't understand that, our auditory system was created to hear sounds not silence therefore my irritation is somehow against common sense. In this context I wonder how can I really habituate and not be bothered by my tinnitus sound if my brain tries to reject sounds in general? Did anyone experience the same and managed to overcome this? Maybe it's my subconsciousness does not want to accept T and does not accept masking as well? Help please.
