I have had Tinnitus and Hyperacusis since Nov 2019, I am resigned to having this forever and do my best to habituate and despite the inevitable spikes I’m getting on with my life.
I woke this morning at 3am and it suddenly struck me that it was quiet!!!!! OMG I couldn’t believe it, I’d forgotten how fabulous silence was, I wasn’t dreaming, it was incredible. I wanted to wake my wife to let her know but was worried if she spoke loudly it might trigger the T (it reacts to sound due to my hyperacusis)
I eventually went back to sleep excited that for me T could be gone.
I woke to the usual roaring T. Gutted. Has anyone else had a brief break from T? I will never forget this and how amazing the sound of silence was and how it made me feel.
