Charming Charmion, yes a pulsating tinnitus is distracting. Being reminded of the sound is not as good as forgrtting about it.
Not thinking of a pink elephant is not the way to go. Start with a disracting fan noise or such.

Losing an auditory nerve hair in the cochleah is normal and starts in your teens but goes very slowly. One hears an internal pure pitch grow loud suddenly and gradually fades away when a nerve hair dies.

Jim that was all very funny but we all have alternatives to deafness.
