        Hi! Sorry got back to you so late. Hmm, I think a little over a year. I think a lot of it was because I refused to accept my condition. I tried everything in the books to cure it or at least to understand it. Once I stopped focusing on this and that, I stopped hearing it and I felt better :)
        Hope this helps!

        Did it lower in volume over time?

        @dpdx yes and no. I think it is the same volume however my brain doesn't perceive it as much so it's kind of like the volume has gone down.

        @Zora well, I just feel okay. I don't want it to get to me and control my life so I am just okay. I suppose I accepted the fact it's there and sort of moved on. I can't really say what I did to make it okay for me I just did everything that made me happy and I just coped.

      Been having a rager lately but I'm sure it will either go down or I'll habituate to this new madness lol

      Kind of wish they would invent a device that can record what our tinnitus sounds like so we could show people lol

      Been doing pretty good; going to get my Wisdom Teeth out today! Let's see how it goes. The doc said he thinks it's related.

        Honestly, don't think it's related but it will be nice to get them removed finally. Been bugging me for the longest time!

      Why do you need a scientist to tell you something works?
      1. Ricardo1991
        Ricardo1991
        Just a question for ye. Why do you need a trial or a test that a scientist will tell you something (like TCM) works? Just wondering. not talking down anybody.
        Just thinking because there's a TCM school here in Colorado but a lot of people claim it's a scam. But these people honest to God believe in this type of work. But if someone gets relief, why is it so easy to shout "PLACEBO! PLACEBO! BURN THE WITCH! PLACEBO!"?

      Question, does you ear feel full? It's been 5 months and my ear still feels fat on the inside.

        According to some, this will be forever. However, I am just curious because that can't be right. Also, my 'bad ear' constantly pops really loud. Like not the normal crackle or thump. Like a Pap! I am flying to San Diego soon, I hope my ear finally pops with the pressure difference. Normally happens when I go to sea level or on a trip. Then everything gets really loud, etc.

      Still fighting this cold. Has no effect on my T. Everything is annoying not JUST my T. Be hopeful, friends :)
