      @WaqasVic did yours slowly fade over the 5 years? Like did it physically fade or just the way you notice it? And if it did, was it a gradual fade or speed up at certain periods?

      Wow. Harsh.

      I mean, sure, let him know not to be cavalier. Let him know to keep taking it seriously. Let him know many are still suffering. But suicide? Was there really a need to go there?

      I think not.

      Yes, it has faded 90%+. it will be 3 years in September. I can say that I don't notice it anymore unless I am in a very quiet place listen for it.

      I would say it went from a 8-9 down to a 1. This is my second trauma tinnitus, and I am 59 years old, so it is quite amazing that they healed as much as they have.

      IMO, Someone who is younger and a first time trauma, I would say they would most likely recover fully in around 2 years.

      That’s awesome. I hope to get there. How long did it take before you noticed it starting to get better? I’m 5 months in and it’s only slightly better.

      It seemed to take many months before I noticed any improvement. Maybe 4-5 months, then I would notice it was slightly less noticeable in the morning, and get louder thru the day.
      Mine was from an acoustic trauma (concert).

      Yeah me too. It has gotten a little better than when it started. It is also much lower in the morning as well and then gets louder throughout the day. I didn’t have an acoustic trauma, I’m guessing it's from stress. But I don't know. I don’t go to concerts or wear ear buds.

      Intermittent Tinnitus probably noise induced
      Sometimes, it seems like there's a contingent of people on this site who actually want others with tinnitus to commit suicide, perhaps because they believe it will speed up the search for a cure.

      having sex too much (it was sex induced folks!!)
      I've derailed my share of threads and have my share of, uh, irony posting moments (here and elsewhere) but lmao imagine being an adult and thinking "hmm yes my wall-text posts concerning the utility of suicide and its philosophical justification are sorely needed here!"

      So you don't understand the plight of people that feel motivated to execute themselves over their intense suffering so you call them "gross ass people"? Maybe you should leave us.

      It’s pointless to post success stories on this forum. There is always someone here whose vision of success doesn’t line up with the OP. Tinnitus is different for everyone and so are others versions of success. I’m getting tired of these stories eliciting anger and jealousy. When someone posts success others act like they are the victims of that success. That’s not how this should work.

      That’s fine but you don’t tell someone else they are going to kill themselves. If you want to do it to yourself that’s fine but you're gross if you imply someone else will... and this forum needs me obviously.

      Not sure. Maybe very high frequency loss in left ear.
      You don’t understand the bittersweet nature of our game, success and suicide are part of the same coin and not that far apart.... feel happy if you are on the success side today.

      You are in the eye of the storm and very soon you will have a recordatory of the wound that is living in your ear. Enjoy while it lasts.
