      I am in my happy place right now; the bath. My bathroom has a fan that hides my T and the washing machine is on in the laundry room so "no" T! Bubble baths are my happy place.


      Where is yours? :)

      Mine happy place changes. 2 weeks ago I would take showers as fast as I can't because my tinnitus would become really loud in the shower. Now? I take longer showers because my T is more subtle. 2 weeks ago my tinnitus was louder at night so I would fear going to sleep. I would only get 4 hours of sleep on average (Once I woke up at 2 in the morning and I couldn't go back to sleep at all. Slept only 2 hours). Now, my tinnitus is lower at night and I've slept better the past couple days. (Now I get 6-7 hours of sleep). My tinnitus is all over the place. Haha. :)

      I loooove taking showers too! I feel like nothing can hurt me in the shower, the sound is so peaceful. I'm currently fearing sleep, think I have an ear infection making it worse at the moment for me. I'm glad you have 2 happy places though :)

      My happy place is in dreams where I am free of my noise!

      Shower for sure, I'm going get a steam shower installed. I take 3 or 4 a day, so so relaxing. If my ears hurt and my T is drilling my brain, into the shower I go.

      In the pool. I love just floating on top of the water on my back. Ears filled with water, just floating. It's the most soothing thing to me. I hear the water...nothing else. Of course this only works when there is no one else in the pool. I love walking outdoors where I can hear nature too, it keeps my mind off my ears.

      In a landscape with millions of crickets - because it mixes with my T or covers it.
      Besides that, whirlpool (which I have at home) or shower - also because they cover my T.

      In the shower, even if I plug my ears in the shower I can't hear the t. I live on 2 acres out of town and outside of a night-time is crickets and frogs galore, my t blends in and it doesn't bother me.

      - Shower, with the added bonus of having hot water massaging my aching muscles. I do feel bad about all the water and energy use, though.
      - In bed, with warm sheets all around me, and a record on which takes me to another world and back.
      - Travelling in a foreign country, just walking unknown streets which 'force' you to be in the moment. Although I won't have the money to do so for the next couple of years.

      Getting lost in a book is also great, but harder to achieve. Also, looking at photos of rabbits usually cheers me up. Nice profile picture, @glynis-harbron ! :)

      Camping with my family....outdoors...with the crickets lots of crickes like @Martin69 said. I'm going to miss the crickets when winter sets. Can't wait to move down south. And yes, doing dishes. The shower used to be a happy place until my hair started to fall... :(, now I dread it. Sigh.

      I'm still trying to find a happy place. I'm still reeling from my ENT visit yesterday and it's hard to accept that the tinnitus is a permanent thing for me.

      I like being outdoors in nature more than almost anything except for maybe a sauna/steam room/whirlpool spa, but, I would have said the same thing before I got T.

      My bathtub at night with my wife... also laying in bed with her at night. I am still pretty freaked out half the time with this. I don't have much of a mental happy place yet. My T the last couple weeks is low when I wake sometimes. I just lay there and relax; I even dozed off with no masking a couple times lately...

      I am just a month ahead of you and still going through it too. We'll find a way.
