      Stop thinking about it. Stop thinking about everything. It is soon enough that it may go away for good. There are far worse things one could have. After 90 days you really get used to it and while it can be annoying, you're used to it. It's like a lame friend or relative. Always around not too annoying.

      Do you tell that to the people who have worse things? And do you dismiss every one of your own problems for the same reason?

      I've had it for 1.5 years; it still torments me some days.

      For mild tinnitus, he's not wrong. If you can only hear it when you plug your ears or in a silent room, most people seem to get used to it in short time.

      Whatever works for a person. FWIW, one thing that helped me turn the corner was realizing some people have it much worse - dealing with terminal illnesses, undergoing chemo, and so on. Put me in a frame of mind that things were going to be fine, despite the cicadas and hissing I still hear to this day.

      I know what I said isn't always true and it sometimes gets louder or changes for the worse, it's just that compared to other injuries/illnesses I've had this one does the least physical impedance and luckily in my case very little mental harm so far. The first few weeks were bad though stress-wise and I wish someone had told me not to worry about it more emphatically!
