I'm in Sydney, it's such a vibrant place. We are from a small town and not used to peak hour city driving, it was full on! Jan 17, 2019 at 9:29 AM

      Sometimes I fantasize about becoming a billionaire and donating all my $ to tinnitus research. That or start a dog shelter.

        Donate half to research, the take another half to starting an animal shelter, with the remnant buy out a local non-chain business in Your area, a gas and sip for instance, then use Your cut on research and animal shelters. but it's only fantasy, so *proceeds to sing the Pirate song with the word billionaire instead of Pirate* I promise never to sing again.

      I no longer feel desperately sad and anxious. I have very reluctantly accepted this and now just feel pissed off about it.

        Do you have tinnitus? I'm suffering from hyperacusis but just like you I laugh it off. What will be the next step?

        I'm exactly like you. It is like i was absolutely fine with that noise and suddenly I catch the sound and it bugs me for months. Just like a radio, catching a particular noise frequency..

      After reaching breaking point from this spike I got an emergency ENT appointment. He said there is a lot of fluid behind my ears .

        He said once the fluid drains hopefully the tinnitus will return to baseline.

        Feel really pissed off 6 weeks ago my Dr wouldn't give me a referral... I've had the worst few months. Knowing it was fluid would have helped my anxiety so much

        If you get a random spike don't let people tell you it's all part of tinnitus. Demand to see an ENT.

      Sometimes I hear a random noise and start panicking it's a new T sound, I freak out until I find out where the noise is coming from.

        Same, once I was at my friends house I heard a faint ringing, I panicked for about 1-2 seconds thinking it was a new T tone, and then asked my friend if she could hear it, and luckily she said yes :D It was a tv box that made the sound.

      Wednesday was a bad day for me Holly.
      It seemed to bug me all day long.
      When I woke up this morning I wondered what my day would be like.
      Would it be another despairing day, or could I take it easy?
      “Easy Dave - just take it easy.”
      I’ve had a pretty relaxed easy day.
      As per my meditation routine, please try to practice a ‘soft mouth’ Holly.

      Holly - we would all love a cure, and I so hope it happens for all of us.
      But in the meantime, we have to try to cope and live as comfortably as possible.
      Either in meditation, or auto-suggestion.
      “Easy Holly - hiss is normal,” just may help to take the sting out of it a bit, once that message has sunk in. xx

        There's strength in numbers. I would be so lost if I had to seek advice from people who didn't have T and I'd also think I was being soft. This really effects us.

        I would be lost too, I was telling my parents about it and they were like "oh that's no good, sounds a bit annoying" I explained to them it was causing me extreme distress and they looked rather puzzled. Thank gosh people here understand.

      My spike switches ears every few hours. Is this a good or bad thing? I think I'd rather it stay in one ear..

        If tinnitus is in your brain that is not unusual. I have that happen a lot and become confused. I think it's more of a perception that it's in your left or right ear. But I could be wrong.
