      "They forget that the mental struggle is really what keeps T intrusive and loud." - everyone should be appalled by this

        "Besides, even if it stays, your perception of it will change for the better over time, as your brain gets more used to it." - Except if your tinnitus gets worse :)))

        "Tinnitus is not that bad compared to many other physical conditions. I know. My tinnitus super loud, it's not fun, but it's not like cancer." Thanks, I'm cured. Maybe having severe hyperacusis that leaves you bed-ridden or developing 5-7 new tones would change your mind :)))

        "CBT, TRT, mindfulness etc. will help us manage or reduce T for some folks" Only for some? Didn't you proudly proclaim that CBT & TRT reduce tinnitus for everyone and that everyone can learn not to perceive their tinnitus anymore?

      Could we stop throwing longterm t/h sufferers under the bus?

        These "horror stories" are real. Yes, they can be scary, but you probably won't "end up like these people".

        Some people still struggle after years because these conditions can be debilitating, their suffering is not optional.

        I wouldn't advice new sufferers to read those stories but I think people should be allowed to share and talk about how brutal t/h can be. How else are they supposed to make other people understand and take them seriously?

      According to Paul Breckell (CEO of ActionOnHearingLoss) “The next five years are going to see such major advances in hearing research.”

        Really hoping that those upcoming five years are going to be different (and actually make a difference) compared to those 5-year phases we had before.

      My brain hasn't "filtered out" my tinnitus in over 4 years because I'm not trying hard enough, yeah, sure.
