      And I hate it. I had a little spike earlier today and that was it. It's been mostly quiet, though I can't say if it's gotten better of if I'm starting to habituate. Either way I hate it as I know it's waiting around the corner to ambush me.

      "T" be a cruel joke.

      Try and enjoy the more quite days. Accept that some bad days will be there. I feel its easier to enjoy the good days then.
      Otherwise you just worry "maybe tomorrow it will be bad so why enjoy this day"

      Great to hear your having some good days and make the most of them and have a ace up your sleeve for not so good days.
      I like downloading a new CD when im letting my tinnitus get the better of me but then I know its time to push hard with everything and know makes me happy and that works for me with my trusty hearing aids I know I won't let tinnitus beat me as its here to stay .
      Try not let your tinnitus take your smile and laughter away...lots of love glynis

      I feel the same way. Days where my T is really quiet and super managable I actually have anxiety about when will it come back! Anxiety if its there, anxiety if its gone. This is such a cruel thing to suffer with. :( I have 1-2 good days followed by a loud day or two, followed by a few good days. It's been my cycle for two weeks now. I try to tell myself this must mean I'm improving or that I'm super lucky I actually have quiet days and not constant T but it's exhausting either way. Hang in there.

      2 months in, and you're already having good days. I wouldn't have said that 2 months in. So you are improving. keep up the positive thinking/mindset. it goes a long way.

      good luck,

      Thank you. I feel like I must be improving as I have read so many posts where it has taken people a lot longer to get to this point. I feel grateful for the fact that I do have good days and am improving or at least better able to tolerate it most days. :) Today has been a little rough so far and I am feeling down and wondering why this had to happen to me but am trying to kick that and get on with my day..
