      Positively you will. Habituation to a certain degree happens to most people given time, and if we don't put up a painful resistance to the T. If in doubt, just compare your current reaction to T compared to the initial stage when T hit. There may be exceptions, but in general, given time, with positivity and patience, perhaps with some treatment(s) which help, most people will find meaningful improvement. There is such thing called neural plasticity over time and so the brain can build new pathway to rewire itself . So perhaps our response to T can get better over time.

      Yes! I did early last year. You can too. My spike went from a 2 (1-10 scale), up to a solid 6 or so. Then back down to, well, OK a bit more noticeable than before. But my sleep improved much and I've readjusted. As for habituation success potential, I suspect there's some correlation with age. I'll leave it to the interested reader to conclude who might adjust better.

      Yes you will! The more positive you are, the most likely it will be. :)
