Hi all, kept reading all these posts and found so many reassuring that I figured I'd join in. Been about a week now and honestly I think the worst part is the fear that I might inadvertently make it worse. Objectively the T itself seems like something I can get use to, though it changes in pitch constantly, but after reading so many comments on habituation I feel like it's something that's totally achievable. It's just that given all the mystery behind it I feel like I'm completely in the dark as to what might help or hurt me. Finally got a few hours of sleep yesterday which was great but tomorrow I'll be heading back to work (in a mall, I work receiving) and I'm terrified of all the loud noises I might come across. Oddly enough certain kinds of noise, fans and cars mostly, bring out a different pitched tone than the one's I hear "normally" that amplifies with the volume, though recedes as I pass it, and I just realized today that there are fans all over my work due to the heat. Again I'm not sure it would make the T worse but regardless I'm pretty freaked out. So I bought some ear plugs hoping to block out the sounds all day but I'm not sure this wouldn't hinder me either in that it could make my already noise sensitive ears even more sensitive. *Sigh* Basically I just hate being in the dark. My parents have been great though I'm sure there a little tired of my sad attitude but I love the them so much. Sorry for the semi-rant, this websites great.
