Hi Guys, here is an except of something I read today and I have a question about it: Please read the following: Treatment with TRT has two components, and each component addresses a different aspect of habituation. The individual with problematic tinnitus first must habituate to any emotional responses to the tinnitus. Second, he or she must habituate to the perception of tinnitus. Habituation to tinnitus perception can only occur if there has been habituation to the associated emotional responses. TRT employs “sound therapy,” which is the long-term use of constant low-level sound, to promote habituation to tinnitus perception . Sound therapy is thought to be effective only when the emotional responses have been neutralized. How do I habituate emotionally? I've been trying for 4 months yet I still get panic attacks several times a day, and think about my tinnitus 100% of the day. I just don't know how to stop the anxiety. I've tried CBT, I've tried meditation, I've tried relaxation. I'm just so irritated and anxious about it. The weird thing is that my microwave emits a sound almost identical to my tinnitus all day. Sometimes I put my head up to the microwave to test if I hate the noise and I dont. I don't hate the microwave noise, which is almost identical to my tinnitus noise. Why? I dont know.
