I got noise canceling headphones. It hasnt helped me improve but it limits the problem. Of course I look super “cool” wearing them in public but it is what it is.

I'm so sensitive to noises... can't do public places, I jump when folk bicycle past me... different "tones" of sound hurt... I can only do one on one conversations, I have major tinnitus, so I have to really concentrate when I'm in a conversation.

It sure has messed with me....
