Wondering how others are doing thru the holidays. My ear pain H and T got so ramped up I had to wear earplugs if I was in same room. Luckily family is very sympathetic so didn't take my disappearances personal. Dogs barking, kids squealing, dishes clattering...so happy to be on way home to quiet. (And 4 weeks to get ready for round two).

Hi, try not use earplugs - and retrain your brain its just sound, throw spoons into draw, and walk past that leaf blower and machines that beep, and when kids are screaming use the sounds as retraining and compliment yourself each time... I have more info on this site, some people will disagree, every ones different with different ideas on solutions...

I understand the retraining concept, but when you have the burning pain that continues even when you remove yourself, I don't know if the retraining concept covers that. (My LDL is only 15 dB).

I see, maybe it wouldn't work for you then, have to be careful and seek advice...
