      07/26/1992...habituated after 2 years; 11/04/11 new outbreak
      am i reading this study right ???...it seems to say that total masking does not hinder habituation

      from the study

      "Results: After 12 months, in the counseling group, three of 18 patients benefited significantly, in the mixing-point group, six of 19 patients benefited, and in the total masking group, four of 11 patients benefited from the treatment. The average decrease in the questionnaire was 16.7% for the counseling group, 31.6% for the retraining group, and 36.4% for the total masking group. No significant average differences among groups were observed."

      i must be missing something
