        Still going? I am 5 days into it and not sure if it will go away, I have just read all your posts

        @Jacob2005 If you've just developed T, you'll probably be fine! The odds of it going aren't the best in the world, but about 1 in 10 people have tinnitus and the vast majority have no issues at all habituating.

        Make sure you wear plugs to gigs and clubs in future, please. Don't join us in miserable T world.

        @Jacob2005 You'll likely forget it exists in no time; I certainly did when mine started 12 years ago. Just make sure you protect in future. Reach out whenever you need.

        Any noise reduction from onset?

        Not really. Sometimes I think my left ear has improved but overall I believe it's the same. My right ear is certainly the "loud" one. Recently, I've been able to sleep without a fan or a sleeping aid (melatonin). But I still hear the ringing.

        I'm able to do things in "silence" again. Like read or write but it's still there unfortunately.

      Also, as I never knew, I’ve been trying to wear ear plugs around anything over 75db everywhere that I go. What else have you done?

        It has "gone down" in volume but it's still here. I can't sleep without sound and melatonin, which I hate.

        I do have a fair amount of information in my posts if you're interested. There seems to be some cross over with HPPD sufferers, neurologically speaking, and they do recover so I do not think it's totally hopeless.

      Hi. Nice to meet you. New to T. Acoustic exposure to gunfire. Has yours gotten better over time? I’m 8 days in. Hoping to improves but also expecting the worst

        Are you coping better though than you were? Habituating?

        I'm no longer suicidal from it, so it does get better.

        I wouldn't say I've habituated. If I had, I'd be able to sleep as I used to.

        I was very suicidal from lack of sleep the first 3 months. I literally called the hotline at 3am several times; so I understand what you're going through.

        It has gotten better. I find it challenging to accept I still have ringing at 6 months though and the paranoia it will get worse.

        Left a less grouchy comment on your profile with better advice regarding sleep.

      I'm very curious about your profile picture, did you take that photo? I think it looks very aesthetically pleasing ☺️

        Stir-fry and switch.

        Pretty sure that's just a photographic variation on the euphemism: Netflix and chill.

        That being said. @Blackbird1016, you really gotta get your head out of the gutter. ( ͠° ͟ʖ ͡°)

        Mostly theoretical at the moment. I do have ideas for a tinnitus non for profit and hope to get that off the ground with the local music scene at some point. Raising awareness.

        I like the avatar picture btw. A delicious looking Asian dish (Korean?) and 2 animal crossing joycons next to it. It works.
