Some weeks ago I have joined an experimental treatment I should not write about just yet (I will when the time comes, I promise). My point is, as a part of this treatment I undergo an extensive evaluation of T including my perception of it, it's factual loudness and hearing tests. In the beginning of this therapy I must say I felt quite good. T was still a problem to me, but I coped somehow, did my usual daily activities, tried not to think too much about T. During that time I had first evaluation of T. Then, few more days into the treatment I had a major spike that left me panicking and full of regrets that I made this decision. I couldn't sleep, I got obsessed again and thought about T way too much. My new, louder T was again measured... and to my surprise the volume has been exactly the same as before. I was 100% sure it has gotten worse, louder. In reality nothing has changed but my attitude towards it. After I have been reassured that there is no reason to worry about and my T hasn't in fact gotten worse, it stopped bothering me so much again. It has returned to a "baseline" level after few more days. It really depends so much how we perceive our T. If we act very emotional, if we have other problems or depression, all this can really exacerbate the noise in our ears. As difficult as it sounds, we need to stay calm and not worry about it too much. Controlling our emotions is the key to fight this condition.
