      Can people stop using their horns? Just had a guy with a van 4 metres from me honking.. Almost feels like I should use earplugs in the city.

        I couldn't go to the final round of a case competition organized by one of the FMCG giants.I was choosen for a team of 4 in TR and we were going to fly to Europe for the final part. It could provide me some really amazing opportunities in the future but I don't give a fuck now.I fucked my brain chemistry for those kind of things at a very young age and I don't want to activate even 1 more neuron to complain about it.

        Most of the long-term, noise-induced success stories that I came across report erratic progress over the recovery period. I'm holding on to this hope as I approach the six-month mark. I've had a few quieter days here and there, but the bad days are still with me.

        @SilverSpiral, I think there are a few posts in the Success Stories where the OP recovered after two years. I've also spoken to another member here who is aware of two people who recovered after three years and four years, respectively (all noise-induced).

        Ears? probably none. It impacts your brain causing gray matter volume loss, which causes T (Josef Rauschecker model). Everybody with T has a loss of gray matter.

      Spikes. Wonder why: Went for a run, had to go into a loud bar for ten seconds to drink it ouside, also clicked my ears. Wonder what cause is
      1. Rubenslash
        Rubenslash
        Don't think it would be the bar. Maybe wind noise from the running? Or just a random spike?

        Not a lot of wind noise luckely. I hope it's random, I tend to click my ears and blow ear through them sometimes. (Without pinching my nose ofcourse.) Hopefully that didn't do any damage..

        I feel the same. Work is loud and my tinnitus is always the loudest at the end of the work week. If I go to a busy restaurant my tinnitus will spike and take a day or two to settle down. It's no way to live.

        I'm not sure if the disappearing is a new thing or not, I've only noticed it recently. If the reason I wake up is because of a bad dream, then the T is usually there right away, though.

        I know what you meant Spiral I'm not that slow. That's one of the main problems on support forums though. You only see the negatives most of the time, and all the positives are talked down. It just adds to the overal feel of hopelessness. Negativity attracts negativity. Positives can come from the most heinous of situations; you've just got to look hard and dig deep to find them.
