      The t on only my left side is screaming today. I think I drove for about an hour and a half with the earplug inserted wrong. Darn it!

        I use Hearos skin-colored and I do ok with my right ear but my left ear canal is small or at a wonky angle and I rarely get that one right.

        Make sure to pull your ear up with your other hand to straighten the canal and allow the plug to go into place properly. If I use foam I roll them up tightly in my fingers, pull the ear up and insert it, then hold it in the ear by placing my finger over the end until it's fully expanded.

      Stepped on the scale today and I've lost 5 lbs of the too many lbs I've gained since getting t.

        So far so good Bill. It was only about 15-20 seconds and my ears have definitely become less sensitive. It's out of my mind unless I wake up and notice a change.

      Our garbage can swings open. One of the kittens got in when I wasn't looking. Few minutes later the bin started shaking. :-) Silly Kitty!

        When I read the first sentence, I thought it was the start of a horror story about a serious T spike. I am glad that it turned out to be a story about a silly kitty instead!

      While we feel like we're the only ones who hear a ringing has it ever occurred to you that everone here hears ringing. Sometimes I forget.

        I can tell you for sure that I had complete silence before chronic T, cause I always slept in a silent room with ear plugs and I heard silence.

        Honestly I dont even know if I ever heard true silence, at least I dont remember. I think I did because this ringing was never a problem before. It just came out nowhere for me.

        Sorry to say, but it's not true. I didn't have ringing in my pre T life. Well, except for the occassional fleeting T, which everyone does get.

      Over the weekend met woman with t (not sure the cause), her son has t (veteran). Today learned my dental hygienist has t (clenching teeth).

        my optometrist has t as well, its slightly comforting (not fortunate) knowing that a majority of people share this, and typically seem normal

        I got a box of 100 off Amazon. They're skin color so they blend in better. I thought I had the trick down but next time I tried I was back to step one.
