      Hey guys. I have not been here to much lately. Something is about to change, I really feel it.

      The last week my T, how to say it, its there, but I really don't care. Tinnitus is like always, but it feels more distant. I don't focus on it so much anymore, and when I focus on it, there really is no reaction from my side. Its just "oh, that sound. jeje". Then it goes back to where it belongs, in the background.

      This is a state of mind I never thought I could come to two months ago. And I was in a pretty bad shape then.

      I don't know for sure. Right now I can hear it. I hear it over the computer fan, and the fireplace behind me burning wood. I took a shower 30 minutes ago, and I had a spike because of the noise. But, even tho its still there, it just feels more distant. It feels less threatening. Its just there. Its just a sound. It wont do me anything, and if I don't make a big deal of it, it won't be a big deal.

      Question -
      Was this from Tinnitus since 8/2010 or just two months of Loud T?
      And you consider this is what people call Habituation? (I need a spell checker on that word)

      I like christine's Thanksgiving remark,,,thats nice.

      So happy for you, Meeruf. So as James said: Is this after three years, since 2010? Or following a spike?

      I came down with my tinnitus six months ago and have been a little disappointed I have not yet habituated... although I am SO MUCH better than in the beginning. Gotta be patient and keep working toward a peaceful, quiet future.

      But hey, this is about you, not me. Seems you have had a seismic attitude shift. Way to go. Sounds like you have reached acceptance. Which is everything. Happy Thanksgiving.

      Sounds good. Who knows, you might be a couple weeks or months away from completely forgetting about it.

      I remember in your introduction thread you said you had hyperacusis, is that still present?

      @James and @LadyDi

      This is after the spike I had this late summer. The T I had pre-spike was nothing. Just a faint background hum.


      Yes, I had some issues with sound in the beginning. I still have, but I manage to ignore it more. I have trouble with the sound of plastic bags, paper bags, shower, sinkwater running etc. The sounds makes my T spike.

      That's fantastic. Gives us all hope. I find I'm less and less focused on the T when I'm busy. I forgot about it pretty much all day today (busy baking and preparing for Thanksgiving). I guess this is habitation? It's there but don't really care!
      I'm so happy for you and wish you continued peace into the future.
