      Hey Marias. I know it is extremely distressing to hear the ringing especially where sleep is concern. I read your earlier post. You have T for about a month now and it actually did stop briefly in between the day. Your T is still in the early stage. It might go away or get better. There are other ways to manage it too. Please don't give up on yourself.

      I can imagine the despair. Regardless of the cause, it is possible to go on. Really.

      Please don't think your life is over. If your T is due to allergies once they are sorted there is a good chance it will go. Unfortunately it can take weeks. I myself go back and forth: sometimes I am fine with it, believing it will go; other times I am terrified and certain it is here to stay. Try to be patient. I agree that you need some sleeping pills and some anti-anxiety meds; talk to your doctor about it.

      You will be okay no matter what happens. People are often stronger than they think.

      Your husband is right: meds can take time to fully kick in. Unfortunately it is hard to be convinced when you are not getting sleep. I doubt you will need sleeping pills forever, even if the T is here to stay. If you dislike taking them perhaps a masker would work? They also do the trick of relaxing you.

      I think once you start sleeping again you will begin to feel better. Just try not to focus on the T. I remember one night I constantly had to tell myself to ignore the T and quickly pulled my mind away from it onto other things, even if they were really stupid (the Postman pat movie was one that was revisited. Still a kid on the inside) and eventually I would fall asleep. It is hard work, and tbh I don't think my T is too loud (at least not most of the time) so I understand that if yours is it's a lot harder to ignore. Keep trying though. Good luck and here's hoping you sleep well.

      The problem is that you are focusing on your tinnitus. What I did when I was trying to fall asleep was to think of things that I loved doing or gave me a sense of peace. For example I made myself an mp3 file of waves crashing on the beach and when I went to bed I would listen to it and imagine I was lying on the beach. There is a good chapter in the Tinnitus book by Henry/Wilson called Imagery Techniques. It's not your tinnitus that is the problem, it's you focusing on it and getting stressed about it. You said you need to put the blanket on your ear to hear it and it quietens down so much that you hear silence so the problem really is more anxiety than the tinnitus itself.
