I never thought I could get used to T in the beginning but now it is just an annoyance that I only notice in a quiet room. It has been quite an emotional ride and I must admit that T had its days where T is all I could think about. 3 months ago I had an impacted earwax that left with me an inflammed ear canal and T. It was loud and intrusive but only localized to my left ear. It gave me anxiety attacks and has sent me to the ER. The first month was the hardest but as each month goes by, my tinnitus has gone down and my habituation to it has improved to where I hardly notice it anymore. I notice the lower in volume because I match my radio to the sound where it masks the T and as of now I don't even have to turn on the radio in my car to mask the noise in my ear. Sometimes I would forget for hours that I have T. My advice for newcomers is to not look up tinnitus and only look at success stories. There is too much negativity in these forums and you need all the positive vibes in the beginning of your journey. As months go by, you will feel better and you will take control back of your life. Accept that you might have this for life and move on and hope that some day in the future it will resolve by itself. Protect your ears!
