still very new to this,but was actually doing pretty well the last 2 days. I didn't really sleep well since last Tuesday averaging 3 - 4 hours a night,but Saturday I came home from work and basically willed myself to take about a 4 hour nap, then went to bed early and felt pretty refreshed Sunday morning. then last night,I fell asleep on my own with no real issues and got almost a full 8 hours in. I've been leaving the TV on,and the new thing was using a humidifier not only to help with my sinuses,but the noise it makes is some good white background noise I've discovered. So anyway I've been pretty good Saturday night,all day Sunday,and most of today,with it lowered to a small background roar. i thought maybe i turned the corner. but i took a shower this afternoon,and the sound came back,big time! i know there will be periods like this where the sound will spike up ,but i always assumed that was after you had fully habituated to the noise? can you suddenly get a spike really early in this process? I'm just concerned if I somehow made it worse,or if this is a normal thing this early on?
