      Loud music, I suppose
      Since my tinnitus spiked in August 2017 I haven't been able to do anything without masking my tinnitus. It would get on my nerves, trigger me and make me angry or sad.

      But my spike has gradually faded and I have gotten used to the fact that I can now hear my tinnitus more than I could before. And I just noticed the other day that I sat in complete "silence." The only sound was the sound of my tinnitus on the right ear. But it didn't bother me at all. In fact I didn't even notice that it was there until I realized that there was no sound in the room at all. No music, no masking sound from my masking-app. No nothing except the silent noises "silent" rooms always make when there's no other sound to be heard.

      I guess I'm making it towards habituation once again and I'm so damn happy. Maybe I will be able to fully live in peace as I did before that spike from hell.

      Anyway I just wanted to share happiness. And maybe it can give those of you who suffer from long lasting spikes a little hope.
