First off, anyone have an indoor water fountain they like and could link to where to purchase? There's so many Amazon, but any first hand experience from someone with tinnitus would be best. I'm also not that crafty, so I'd rather buy one, plus it would be a cool piece to have, anyway. I like to read books, but since my tinnitus has been a lot louder this past month, I struggle a bit to ignore my head noise before I can put the sounds on ignore and get lost in the story. I can do it, but it takes some effort. Now for the ramblimgs.... My tinnitus is SO FREAKING WEIRD and I don't get it. Sometimes it drives me crazy, sometimes I could couldn't care less about any of it. I live in an average sized apartment that's not very big and it's quiet, real quiet and as soon as I get inside from work my T just BLARES at me when I sit down on the sofa and it always initally freaks me out and I just think, "oh my god, WHY!? I can't escape this sound! There's so much sound!" even my cat will look at me like, "..the fuck, man? What's with you? Get over yourself and pay attention to me" (my cat's a narcissit) but when I go outside for a walk even on a quiet night my T is barely there. It's there, but my brain doesn't pick it up right away, I look for it and find it and then it's there, but it's such a small fraction of the volume compared to when I'm in a quiet, smaller room. Any idea on why this is? Even large, conference rooms that are silent my T doesn't sound at all like it does when I'm at home. It's frustrating. You could put me in a large sealed room with a fan and I wouldn't notice my T, but a small room with a fan and I can still hear my T. Also our minds (or at least a lot of our minds ) are so incredibly impressive at tuning out these invasive sounds as they are picking them up and locking on them. I noticed this a lot yesterday when I spent a good hour or so at the library for the first time in a couple months. As soon I was walked in, BOOM, just surrounded by loud head noise, it was so loud I couldn't believe it, but I shrugged it off, and when on my search for some books. I was on a mission and I wasn't going to let T take that from me. After about 20 minutes of searching the isles I noticed I wasn't bothered by my T and from that point on it got quieter and quieter and after about 45 minutes I didn't even notice it. Same thing when I got home... My T just BLARES at me and I'm in a state of shock and thinking, "I'm never going to be able to read these books. These sounds are just too much," but then it happens... a few chapters in the T just go back, and back and farther back into my head where I can't even tell it's there anymore. Then my mind looks for it, picks it up and it's loud again. Frustrating.
