No, not voices in my head. But ringing in my ears, also known as tinnitus. It sucks rocks. I’ve had this for about four or five years now. And, of course, there isn’t anything doctors can do about it, because they don’t actually know fersure what causes it. If you go to this site and press the sixth sound and the third sound — lower the volume on your computer a bit they’re loud — you’ll get something of an idea of what I hear all day, almost every day.
It’s annoying as hell. You’d think after five years of hearing these noises, I’d get used to it, but no. I haven’t. Because they’re intrusive and they’re not consistent. Some days, like yesterday, I hardly hear the noise at all. Some days, like today, one ear is louder than the other, and it’s not the same sound as it was, say two days ago, and other days both ears are equally annoying, and the sound is higher pitched or louder than it was the day before or whatever.
I can hear just fine. I haven’t lost any of my hearing. I don’t have to turn the volume up on the television or computer. I can hear what people are saying to me without having to ask them to repeat themselves (except on the phone but that’s because phones are crap these days). So my hearing isn’t suffering from this. Mostly… it’s just annoying.
And, of course, one cannot talk of sound without sharing the Sound of Silence. I’ve come to like this rendition of that song.
