I was at a Tae-Kwon-Do event today with my brother. It was his first fight event. I had to be there and cheer him up. He got bronze. Not bad for being his first time in a real fight. However. This event lasted 8 hours. It was not very loud, but some noise it was. 200-300 people with some background music with speakers. I was prepared with earplugs. I used the earplugs most of the time, but I had to take them out sometimes to hear what people said. If I'm to conservative with earplugs I can get hyperacusis to. That something I don't want. That is another reason I took the earplugs out sometimes. Now I don't know if my tinnitus is louder because I'm tired, or if I'm tired because of louder tinnitus. I don't know whats up and down. I'm home again now but the tinnitus have not settled yet. I don't even now if it actually is louder, or if I only feel bad about my tinnitus again. I used earplugs at the event, but T still got more bothersome or louder. I guess I just feel bad because I really wanted to be there for my brother 100%, but I feel like I can't. When people are talking to me I'm like: "uh?", like I'm on another planet. I don't know why I feel like this. This should be a win. It's the first time I'm at a event for eight straight hours after my accident. Anyone experienced something similar?
