Hello guys, I wanted to write a minor "success-story" around New Years since I had finally habituated to my T after 2-3 weeks in. However life happened again. My fire alarm went of three times during the last days. First time I forgot to turn the fan on (window was open) and I got startled of course. The alarm is right above me (1-1,5 m up) and I cover my ears right away. I had to let go of one hand to turn the fan on. It beeps for another 5-10 seconds (with ears covered). Then after a 5-10 min it goes off again (!) even with the fan on and the window open. This time I had my headphones on (those that covers the ears) because I don't know why, I had the sensation that "just in case it goes off again" I had some kind of protection (also my boyfriend was playing video games and I got tired of hearing the sound from it). This time I didn't cover my ears since I mostly got annoyed with it going off again. It beeps for 10-15 seconds. What surprised me was that it wasn't as loud as I remember it from the first time it went off (which was 3 weeks prior). So I felt kind okay, didn't think about it for the whole day. At night I started to worry since I tried to listen to the T and see if had changed. I couldn't hear anything different so still anxious but had no evidence of it to be damaging for me. Two days later, or yesterday rather, it goes off again. I swear I wanted to tear that crap down (but didn't because I wasn't sure if it would start beeping if I removed it in a wrong way). Fan on max, windows open but no it starts beeping again. This time I stood a little more to left, the sound just felt like it screeched right into my right ear. Startled of course, and covered my ears within second (heard two BEEPs uncovered) and ran into the bedroom (which is like 2 meters away) and just stood there with my ears covered (same like before, took 10-15 seconds until it stopped). I felt instantly that something was wrong after it, and my body was shaking and my boyfriend tried to talk to me and make me feel better but I don't know. My first reaction was that "this is it, this will damage my ears for real, it was much louder than last time and it feel like it just tore into my ears". I will talk to the landlord and have them to turn the alarm off, however I am mostly scared that the noises have damaged my ears or made the T worse. I can't say for sure if my T has spiked, I do want to say that it changed a little, from more buzzing electronic noises to a more clear "iiiii" in the right ear. But then again, that "iiii" has always been there more of less, and I don't know if me, starting to listen for it has made me think it has spiked or increased. I don't feel that it has been a major increase in loudness, if it has, then it's maybe a slight increase. I don't feel muffled in any of my ears. I feel rather anxious again, and angry. Angry that I finally felt good, habituated and all, and now I am back on square 1 or 2 with the worries again. Please, does anyone know if I should be worried about causing damage or increase the T in loudness permanently?
