One week in, and I've about had it with cicada mating calls and ticking time bombs. Help. I know what it is, and I suspect an 8 yr. old fungal infection which wiped out much of my hearing and left me with chronic infections, is somehow related to this. MRI's, etc. are happening, but I kinda know that this is my brain for now and probably always. How does one integrate the buzzing and dripping sound that occur almost 24/7 into a livable life. Will it gradually just become the proverbial "background noise", or will I always panic every time it starts? How can I live with this?
