After living in one place for 25  years, I have had to move 6 TIMES in the last year with h.., and with little money, and in a noisy city. Can anyone talk about their own struggles with finding adequate quiet housing? It is aqlways nice to know that we are not alone in our struggles.

Hi Lorrie, I never damaged my ears as in one particular moment of extreme sound - and when I had H bad 4 years ago now, I had to move into the rear bedroom away from the traffic noise, just the tyres were too much. Then I found out in 'my case' it was never the ears it was the brain being fussy, I don't like this sound and I don't like that one either... So by chance I found this information, it was the brain and I retrained it to love the sound of brakes screeching and grand kids banging toys. Don't know if this will help you, there's more in my past posts...

Hello Lorrie,

I understand your struggle. It is really hard to check a place Out before you havent been living in it. I also live in the City and Go on the weekend to my Patents into a Village. Both are noisy. The City more but the Village Had its working peopel with lawnmoves, chainsaws.... And all the brutal stuff. I think best is to move away from the city to a quieter and Less populatet area, If possible. You will Always be teoubled in a City doesent Matter where you Go.

I Hope i could give you a little Help, at least my opinion.

PS: Just have to get away from my place in the Village due to lawnmovers. My dad will after that cut Wood, its necessary :/. So These are the daily struggles. No Matter where you are. I try to find peace in a forest whith a small River.

Hi Lorrie,
You are definitely not alone- finding quiet housing is a challenge for many of us with hyperacusis.  I have been seeking such a place for many years myself.  I have moved 6 times since 1993 when my ears were damaged by a loud explosion of hydrogen and oxygen gasses.  Eventually I ended up in a semi rural area which I thought would be the answer and though we do have quiet days here, because I live outside city limits, people are allowed to target practice on their property.  Those are the times I find quite distressful.  We also have several neighbors in the area with dogs that bark occasionally and almost always in the morning and evening, and a fair amount of chainsawing noise from time to time.  The outside world around here is not a place I venture to often.  I run a fan to help white out some of the noise. 
It's frustrating living in a noisy world- I do understand.  I hope you are able to find a quiet place or at least form an insulated, quiet room- a safe haven room where you can find some comfort.  
Wishing you the best,
Brian

I do agree it is hard to find where to live. Both rural and urban have there issues.  If ones actual immediate area is quiet that is a real benefit.

Some of us are more bothered by background city noise and other by the immediate, but I expect most of by both.  I bought a place in the country long long ago and it was quiet, but as it got more populated, as others have said there are noises of riding lawn mowers, tree cutting, dogs barking, all terrain vehicles.
etc. So, when it is not the specific noises it is usually better although I have been bothered by the sound of grasshoppers, etc.

In the city, if one can find a quiet neighbourhood that is great--I found that, and it is wonderful. But the background noise of the roar of a city can be an issues and then there are ambulances,  street parties, airplanes, traffic and hence I find I have to use earmuffs for that. 

Some cities are now implementing more noise control so there is a bit of a shift in society.
