      Mine started from headphone use. Only took a couple of occasions and the volume wasn't even very loud. I also find talking on my cellphone or using ear buds seem to spark it up so I minimize anything close to my ears. Mine is about 12000hz and I can't hear anything above that frequency. I have good days and bad days.

      Hopefully you find our resources helpful. Do you have any special methods for coping that you'd like to mention?

      Take care,

      Nothing particular, but light noise of any kind seems to help me forget about it. I found being outside seems to drown it out too :)

      Greg,

      Welcome! Nice pizza. I just made a pizza on my grill. I use a stone and only fresh toppings, from my local organic farm stand and make my own sauces. I also grow my own herbs. Basil, oregano, rosemary, etc. that's one of the benefits of living in Florida.

      I find being outside is the best also. Being in my house, isn't to much fun anymore, unless I have some background noise running. Semi-noisy, public places and the beach, is where I find some peace. I'm only 11 months in, but determined to make my peace with it! Like you say, some days are better than others.

      Hope it's warming up for you Canadians? Been a brutally cold winter up north this year. I'm originally from NYC, so know the drill!

      God bless
