Hello everyone, I just went online to share an experience. Last days I made a business trip, four days of work from 8am to 11pm, meetings, presentations, talking to many people, promote our new software products, etc etc. This is the part of my job that I enjoy more, but was cautious because my Tinnitus increases when I talk too much, and especially my hyperacusis. The first day was cautious, step by step, but then I said what the hell, let's do this! I began to accelerate, talk talk and talk, I was so busy and enjoying what I was doing, which at times forgot that my sound was there, and my hyperacusis was not bothering me that much. I was at a music event (I used my earplugs), I went to a karaoke with clients (I used my earplugs) and ... nothing bad happened, I did not increase my T and my hyperacusis not worsened, my trip was a success, my T's I keep hearing over most of the sounds, but it does not bother me at all. In fact, after this trip, my hyperacusis improved incredibly. To all my friends in this forum, I say to you, I confirm what I has long understand, that much of our problem is not in the sound, but in our heads, our level of stress, anxiety, own limitations. I have had T since I was a teenager, since 2 years I've had loud enough to be over all the ambient sounds, since a year and a half does not bother me, but after this trip, I lost the final constraint I had with my hyperacusis. Still there, suddenly some sounds hurt me, but no more limitations. Tomorrow I'm getting to the office earlier than usually and will start to plan my new direction and strategies. Greetings and wish you all the best, I do not know you personally, but for the simple fact that I understand what you are suffering, I feel that I love you all.
