      Hello @derpytia! I came across your posts about the use of musicians earplugs and know that you were a college student when you used them. I would like to ask you more about the use of them but I cannot find "start a conversation" in the "conversation" settings of the forum panel . Would you mind sending me a message so I can ask you questions there? Many thanks!

        Thanks so much for your reply @derpytia!! I have got your message but could not find a reply button in the inbox. So the conversation is read only. I am not sure if this is because I am a new member ... So maybe I ask you here.
        Do your tinnitus amplify after you wear the musicians earplugs? If yes, how is the intensity of it? Can you withstand it when using the musicians earplugs for hours of lectures?

        I need to break my message to two as a popup window said I can only enter less than 420 characters in this wall message ...
        You can reply me by message {"conversation"). And
        It would be appreciated if you can pass me your email address("conversation" again) so I can further communicate with you. Thanks a lot again!

        @John G, my doc is a pretty smart guy. One of the few doctors I haven't had a problem with yet. But it's true. Everyone on my mom's side of the family is from Ashkenazi Jewish heritage and everyone has gotten cancer at some point in their lifetime, especially female descendants including my mom's mom and my great grandmother who died from it. There is a HUGE chance that my mother and I will get it.

        Cannot begin to tell you how many articles are put out by the press around the world saying "but don't worry people with tinnitus aren't bothered by it after awhile". habituation doesn't always mean we aren't bothered by it. it means we have somehow managed to be productive or functional to some degree despite our T. It's so misleading when they say we aren't bothered by it. No wonder the world doesn't care about us.

        That's because, only 2 million out of 50 million in the US, have debilitating Tinnitus. Only 6 million, seek medical attention. So, 42 million, don't give a shit! Pussycat T, versus Tiger T.

        I know you still can hear your T with earplugs, but you should go to the musical and wear some earplugs. Who cares what others will think, and enjoy a night out.

        What is a lifetime? For you or me it could be 24 more hrs..maybe 2? Life is now. If you can't find a way to make the best of the worst then sadly you're fucked. No point pinning hopes onto a future that may or may not even happen. Just how I cope with my chronic pain and t and h.

        I think so. I have been reading some great stuff in the medical journals that are behind paywalls. Also there is a doctor who is currently working on regenerating the hair cells thru stem cell therapy. But its a decade away. But the wheels ARE turning out there. No doubt about it.

This is a daily battle for sure, but try to win the war, in the long run. I know it sucks big time, and life seems dismal, but try to live day by day as I do! You can make it girl!
