      As the key to habituation is to give Tinnitus less importance, I think by referring to it as "the thing" rather than "my T" will help the brain give it less attention.

      Just my little tip :)

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Likely stress, anxiety, an antibiotic and nsaids
      Great idea; I'm going to call mine 'cousin-it' (from the Adam's Family TV series).

      Hehe :)

      Good one, "cousin-it".

      The key is to make your T less significant. ;)

      I sometimes think of my T as a hungry baby screaming for milk but I am guy so it is a waste of its time and energy to scream at me for nothing. LOL.
