      I believe it was meds and stress
      In Az they have these little creatures that chirp when the heat is unbearable and the rain is near.
      I went for a walk today and they were out big time they drowned out the T. The CICADA were out in numbers.

      About 20 minutes later they all stopped on the same instant, I heard them. Then the T came back.
      They actually muted the T. I dont think you could listen to their sound for very long.
      The CICADA are coming! Cchhiirrpp...chirp!

      Yes, cicadas drown out T if it is high-pitched.
      I oftentimes listen to cicadas on my mobile. Not very pleasant, but better than listen to T.

      Yesterday I had a similar experience when I was in nature.
      But it was millions of bees or wasps. The sound around me was a deeper buzzing.
      It did not cover my T since it was lower in frequency.
      My son said: Oh, what an ugly sound. I do not talk much about T, but I said this is similar to what I hear 24/7. He felt sorry for me and then we went on.

      I cannot tell if the lower buzzing or the higher hissing is better.

      Hey Carlos.
      Good to hear from you.
      At the moment I have many loud days.
      I just try to ignore the craziness in my head.
      Sometimes it works, sometimes not.
      As you said, the battle continues.
      I am hoping for AUT00063 and/or SF0034.
      Take care.
