      1 year with T. Things change. Sometimes it’s harder than other times, but mostly okay.

      My job is so quiet. Apart from the low hum of the dehumidifier/humidifier machines in the museum, which cover my T beautifully. :)

Anyway, how have you been? So far your operation seems like it was a success? Are you improving by the day? :) x

      Hey Steph! I'm so sorry to hear of all your additional health issues. Just when you think you're coping something else comes along. WTF! Makes you wonder when/if it will all end. I think that's what makes it so hard sometimes - not knowing. Keeping you in my thoughts. :)

        Thank you so much for your kind words Sarah. They mean a lot right now. I’m trying to have faith that all will be okay. My health has taken such a hit in the past year. I can’t keep up! Hope you’re okay, and the T is being kind. How’s the gorgeous pup been? Hopefully not chewing too many objects hehe. :)

        It doesn’t matter what age you are, no one deserves to suffer. <3 What is causing the numbing/stinging - it sounds very distressing! As for my liver problems/lung/heart issues, I have looked into private health care, but it will cost 1000s, but I believe the NHS are taking me seriously now - fingers crossed! Do we even have a Mayo clinic in the UK? Be interesting to find out.

        I’m sorry Steph :( I can only suggest what you already know really - eat healthily and take vitamins (I always take a multi-vitamin and glucosamine for mildly achy knees). I hope the NWH takes you seriously! :O

        I had to take my final exams, two months after my T began. It was hard, but actually the intense studying became a welcome distraction. And now I’m finished, I’m so glad I held on. I couldn’t let T beat me. I just couldn’t. Don’t let it win Ilias T. X

      I rarely mention my PT. It is life altering, and 100% worse than my normal T. Yet again - failed by the NHS.

        Great two things wrong but at least they can both be fixed. So anyway, they said they needed to take a high definition ct scan to map out my head and double check that their diagnosis is correct.. That was back last June. I still haven't had it done. I'm not even on a waiting list. They're just not running the scans atm because of Covid.

        So yes, three years coming up since I decided to try and sort it all out, and so far I've been laughed at, lied to, and left in limbo. Every consultant has given me a different diagnosis, and undermined the last consultant when I've spoken to them. The NHS is failing. It's under staffed, under funded, and overcrowded.

        Doctors won't refer you to hospitals because they know they haven't got the resources, and our solution to anything over here, is to chuck people of medication rather than get to the root of the problem. You know it's bad when you tell someone something is wrong and their response is always - "well no point in going to the doctors, because they won't do anything about it. Best of paying and going privately".

        He said he tries not think about it otherwise it really gets on his nerves. I hate knowing my friends suffer, but at the same time, I'm so glad they understand what I'm going through. This condition is so much easier when people can relate.

      Had a dentist app today. I asked for a manual clean instead of the ultra sonic clean. She was more than happy to do a manual clean for me.

        She was actually incredibly sympathetic about T. She said her Nan suffered terribly with T. She said she will always do a manual clean if people ask, because she would never want to make anyone's symptoms worse... What a wonderful lady. <3 If only others without T could have her attitude. It would make our world easier.

        My T originally started in my left ear then spread to the right. Hopefully it will fully fade in the left, but I doubt it. Left was always the louder of the two.

        I still protect my ears whilst driving and in noisy environments, but apart from that, my life is 95% back to normal. Some nights I still put on sound enrichment, but not very often. I realise that I'm very, very lucky. I'm not mourning the past as much as I used to, and I even go an hour or so some days without thinking about my T. Habituation hasn't quite kicked in yet, though I still hold hope that it will.
