        I couldn't let it rule me, get me anxious, or view it as a threat. I say good morning to it each day, and go about my life enjoying each God given day as usual.

        I also have other health issues, with blepharitis being the most recent. I also got tmjd in 2008, runners knee in 2006, herniated 3 lumbar discs during a workout in 2015, and yet, I enjoy life most days with minimal disruption.

        Despite all these issue, with the exception of running, listening to loud music and using earbuds, lifting heavy objects, going on roller coasters, I fully enjoy normal life

        Im only 40 so when I talk with my 70 year old friends who are in great health I get a bit sad, but that isn't the life that was appointed for me.

      there's an alternative to treatment in the future a lot of our members are considering called suicide.

    Tinnitus Since:
    8/2018
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    noise exposure while doing work on home
    I got tinnitus from working on my home in a cabinet while removing tile which created an echo chamber of noise. Stupid move! Never considered ear protection and now regret that, though I do protect my ears now.
