While my tinnitus seemed to have died down it now seems to be back up again. I really can't stand it. It's louder than anything. I can't seem to get any breaks. I'm having problems staying asleep. Nothing seems to mask it. My desire to do anything is way down. I just can't seem to handle it. I've been having a lot of negative thoughts. I want to believe that it will diminish to a reasonable level, but that seems like a fantasy. Nobody around me seems to understand what impact this is having on me. Not to mention the hyperacusis on my left ear is horrible. I just can't handle it.
