I'm right now in the aftermath of a huge discussion with my mother. Whenever she yawns, she has a tendency of adding a 'scream' to the end, it's hard to explain, painful to experience. (Even prior to t) Point is she did it straight into my ears yesterday, and on a daily basis sneezing, screams, crying and barking is a part of what a normal ear should go through. Some time ago I was sitting next to a girl, who watched something one direction related, and SCREAMED straight into my ear. I was in total shock, and so where the surrounding people cause it was Loud. Had I punched her in the face to make her stop everyone would've been startled, surely it would heal after a week, but a punch would be physical abuse and illegal. On an everyday basis, a knockout to my ears is forgotten, and does hardly count in the first place. I feel an increase in distorted hearing, a counterattack when I tell people to not sneeze directly into my ears, point a baby's death ray cry towards my ears, pointing out my dogs extreme outbreaks of sudden barking despite his positioning next to my head. They say "There has to be room for all of us", making me feel like the grand issue and can't be included as nothing but I have changed. I have no idea how to deal with this. My mother told me it was a problem to her that I react so emotionally to such, and my emotional response would ruin the entire evening, and if I could stop doing that. Then that we had to talk to a tinnitus-expert as it clearly isn't working out for any of us, thing is just the 90% of ENTs/t-experts here have their t-knowledge bound to the 5 first lines on wiki.One told us "No a dog bark can't give you t"... I don't know what to do or say to any of them, how to cope with this.. "There has to be room for all of us" makes me feel like I'm not making room for them, it fills me with guilt, and ultimately there isn't room for me and I should sacrifise myself.
