Today was not a great day for me at all, and I'm not sure if my anxiety is getting the best of me or if it is my H & T. Today I went for a hair cut and highlights. This is something I have done before, and while the place I go to can get noisy I have always been fine wearing my foam earplugs that block out 33db. Though today was not normal, today I was (UNEXPECTEDLY) in there for 5 HOURS. The new guy messed up my hair and they kept trying to fix it, and I was there for a whole 5 hours. My db meter didn't go any higher than 80, and usually just stuck around 73-77 db, and at my sound tolerances with my earplugs I should of been fine...But my ears started hurting, and I'm not sure if that was because my plugs were in for so long (they do that sometimes), or was it my H... After that I had to go to the grocery store, and do some other errands, all which were not very quiet. Yet I stayed protected with my plugs...Finally I am home, plugs are off, and I feel so stressed. I know I had a busy day and it was noisy and frustrating, but my T is out of control. I can't remember the last time it has been this loud. My ears are also kinda achey. I just am so stressed, and I don't need any mean comments on this, I just needed to rant to a community that understands what I am going through.
