    (1/3) Believe it or not, I fully respect the point that non-severe tinnitus sufferers have made about pain thresholds, and how less than catastrophic cases can be just as debilitating as catastrophic cases, for many individuals.

    (2/3) What frustrates me, is when those same non-severe sufferers recover or habituate, then go on to become self-avowed authorities on the subject, who will preach to us, doctors, and the whole f*cking world, that "tinnitus becomes a non-issue in most cases" or that "it just requires the sufferer to stop paying attention to it".

    (3/3) These people are more often than not, just acute/mild/moderate cases that have gotten lucky, who then proceed to pull the ladder up behind themselves, giving a massive "f*ck you" to all chronic sufferers by publicly minimising the condition.

    They are the ones I hold in contempt, and the success stories sub-forum is full of them.

    Speaking as someone in this situation - the only correct way to live is thanking god for your luck, supporting those who cannot experience the same thing you do - and never forgetting about T a day in your life.

    It’s such a massive disservice to invalidate others when you’ve come out the other end. It’s a miracle, not a guarantee.

    I'm in that category of mild/stable and I thank the gods every day. But the problem is, you don't know what happens the next moment. And I don't know if truly stable T exists. I myself get some weird half a sec blasts that may or may not be SBUTT's, almost every day or a few times a week. These up & downs cause a lot of axniety.
