We had a power outage yesterday, so everything went completely silent. Now I can hear all of the different sounds of tinnitus: three different sounds: these is a high pitched constant squeal, a shh like white noise sounding thing, and the right ear has a low frequency hum. It is so devastating to think that a year ago all I had was a slight high pitched squeal and now it has deteriorated - I feel so devastated. Each day is a struggle, but somehow I keep going. I need a large ridiculous amount of meds just to get to sleep, and even there, it is just kind of a twilight with no real solid sleep at all. I am so devastated, especially with the complete silence showing exactly how bad it is. I am going to attempt "music therapy" which consists of playing quiet easy to listen to music in addition to the constant pink noise/ white noise that I already am forced to use.
