    Tinnitus Since:
    Moderate 2000 Severe 06/2013
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    aspirin, machinery, acoustic trauma
    Experienced all levels of tinnitus since a teenager.

    Noise induced. Heavy aspirin from migraines when young.

    Post graduate student

    Noisy work environments

    Was successful business owner, 25 years, up to seven employees

    three years ago airblast caused severe tinnitus, 85 dB

    Quit sports and socializing, avoided friends

    Became hermit, work only

    Never goes to doctors, avoids doctors and medicene

    Lost appetite, lost a lot of pounds, insomnia, days without sleep

    Psychosis happened, never had mental issues before

    Full blown psychosis, total detachment from reality

    Very bad things happened

    Forced to stay twelve days in mental "hospital"

    Long recovery process
    (detail list too long, this is a tinnitus forum, not mental)

    Lost business while in "hospital"

    Have been hermit for two years

    Discovered social media while doing google research

    Social media helped me engage with other people again
    ^^^ this was very helpful, crawling back to civilization without leaving the house

    Have been mostly dealing with psychiatry, just now joining tinnitus online community
    (while psychotic, had vivid and elaborate hallucinations and delusions) At least this what they told me but they were the same as real. They were spiritual related causing to go to Church, I recently "graduated" Catholic.

    Have always been athletic and healthy, never dreamed this could happen.
    Didn't want to live for a long time, severe tinnitus is my major issue.

    I gave up against T. I now do whatever T allows me to do. T is a persistent condition, full of stamina, never quits or gives up.

    I have downsized big house to tiny apartment.

    This forum is appreciated
    Thank you for a place to dump my baggage and be at home among people who know about tinnitus through personal experience.
