Over the past week or so, generally the tinnitus hasn't been too bad at all and at the weekend, I had a couple of really good, periodically silent days and was feeling really positive. For close to 2 years, I have had to have background noise in the bedroom to fall asleep, but I have it on a timer, so after 1 hour, it switches off. Last night, I couldn't get to sleep. Not particularly because of the tinnitus, I just couldn't get to sleep. Anyway, the background noise switched off, so I was left just with tinnitus, but managed - for the first time in all this time - to fall asleep anyway without having to restart the noise. I was thinking to myself, that not only has it quietened down quite a lot over the past few months, but also, despite how variable the sounds are, I am slightly habituating - all positive. I woke this morning and it still wasn't too bad, but noticeable. However, when I got up and started moving about, it decided to become loud and has been so for the past 4 hours. There isn't really a point to this thread, other than to express how depressed it makes me that without due cause, it suddenly gets worse - especially depressing as it always seems to occur just after I'm feeling/being really positive about it - I thought it should be the other way around and get worse when I'm depressed and thinking about it. God this is rubbish - I just want to stop thinking about it!
