the less I care about it, the less I hear it, the mind is VERY POWERFUL.... when people live next to airports they always claim they would hear the planes all the time, but eventually they get used to it and never notice them anymore. its the exact same thing with tinnitus your brain is designed in a way that it takes over and adapts, you're are designed to adapt to change and circusmtances!!! don't waste time dwelling on tinnitus (I know its easier said than done) but start slowly by living your life, reading a book and analyzing how much u care because u chose to listen to it. (that is how I did, nowadays I don't even hear it unless I go in my head "I haven't heard tinnitus, let me look for it, and its there"! there are tons of resources that help your mind!!! Speak with someone who specializes on the mind, YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR BODY NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND, good luck!
