Week 13 I think. In the past 2 weeks my panic has gone down a bit and there are longer periods of time I don't think about tinnitus.. Especially during the day... but sleep is SOOOO hard. It's so hard to mask at night so I will be honest... I drink myself to sleep and then at about 5 am if I wake up I might take 1/2 a Xanax. I'm so scared to try something new. All that is in addition to me having to wear big headphones or wrap around soft headphones (not ear buds) with pink noise. For some reason even if that is on a machine next to my bed or on a speaker pillow the T comes through at night. I'm just always second guessing how I am coping. I hear you are not supposed to use any headphones and then you are supposed to keep your masking low. Then the wine. I just want to be able to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Or is this my new life? From about 7pm-10 pm is very hard because I can hear it just being in my bedroom and I get panicky. Last night at 8 I jumped on my exercise bike and that helped me avoid a panic attack and at least kept me from as much wine. That was good. It's just all baby steps but I'm so afraid of a set back. It was unbearable before (the panic and anxiety) and now with my stupid regimine it's just bearable. I love those success stories that people say the tinnitus is no big deal now but sometimes I end up reading about people who never habituated and it terrifies me.
