        No complaints from her in the last week about tinnitus - looks like she has habituated though she did grimace when she first told me she has ringing in both ears. I have not brought it up again.

        USA is messed up - bad health is booming business. Poor diet low standards boosts profits for meds, insurance etc. In europe food additives have to be proven safe, in usa they are allowed unless proven unsafe. Everything is the wrong way round which is why the Lenire was licensed. Not that europe is free of trouble but americans have to wake up and take back control of their food supply and health.

        Thanks. I had some awful impingement on my upper left arm that rendered it useless for many things. Getting a shirt on caused pain. Tried physio exercises but no good. Forgot about it and it cleared on its own. 1 press up a month ago felt like my back was going to break so I did some chair lifting. At last I could do 1 press up - then 2 etc. Not boasting much just saying one can recover from injury.

        At your service, Stuart! =] I just think the priorities are backwards. You know what troubled me? When I found out that the color TV actually came out before the black & white, that's why my college prof. told us anyways. That fascinates me! IDK if that compares to what we’re talking about but it’s all about that dollar bill.

        There was very early colour experimental technology but Black and white sets and broadcasts appeared in the 1930s and colour in the 50s. But anyway - why allow this issue to cloud your judgements on very single tech claim? Do you suppose we had cellular mobile phones before landlines? LOL. Or laptops before desktops? Always check the evidence for every claim you want to verify.

        There's some things you can do, a lot of it is not optimal long term. The two things that worked for me was to turn the fan I use for my tinnitus at night 180 degrees so it doesnt blow right in my face. The other is that I have rosacea on top of the dry eyes, I recently got a cream for that and it has helped tremendously with the eyes as well.
