      Hi, I was trying to get in contact with @bill 112. We used skype a couple times and can't seem to get in contact with him anymore. He seems to have dropped off skype and dropped from this website.

      Is he doing ok? Has anyone been in contact with him? Just confused is all. Thanks for any help from anyone who knows him.

      I used to be in contact with him too regarding qigong sessions he was about to start, but no word from him for some time now.
      Hope he's ok.

      We're you just in contact with him via this site or any other way? Just concerned.

      Just through this site.
      I didn't get the impression he was THAT bad! Was he?

      @bill 112 you need psychological help
      You are CLEARLY manic depressive! The mood changes and your on off behavior are worrisome!

      He's probably in Thailand right now. As far as I know, he booked his treatment for February.

      I think you mean bipolar. Are you worried about Bill Amber?

      I think they mean the same thing. Unless you're trying to tell Amber the current name?

      I'm still trucking everyone, my family got worried about me and sent me to hospital that's where I've been ever since.

      Feeling somewhat good now, doctors there really cared about how bad things are and have medicated me accordingly.

      I don't know what the meds are but they literally turn my T off completely, last night I slept in total silence for the first time in six years.
      I know it's most likely only temporary, the hardest part was dealing with all the noise in the hospital, doors and metal bins slamming shut was just a nightmare.

      They also organised a meeting for me with an ENT surgeon whose willing to perform the round window reinforcement procedure on me so I'm looking forward to seeing if that can help me.

      Thanks for thinking of me, I'm not done just yet ;)

      That's great news. It means there is something that seems to work for you. It may not be something you can take long term, but it may provide an indication to the doctors about the type of compounds that may be helpful to you, and possibly even provide clues to them as to where your T originates, or some other specificity. That may in turn lead to a longer term type of treatment.

      It's just one data point, but it may be important. I view it as good news.

      Good luck!

      Thanks Greg, yeah it literally reduces my T by about 98% and H by about 50% but I have no idea what will damage them further at this point as my baseline tolerances are still stupendously low so I'm trying to remain vigilant whilst in hospital.

      I'm home now but I have to go back tomorrow and a psych ward is just a nightmare for someone with H, hopefully be home for good on Monday.

      Thanks Dave, I've watched that video a few times now,I might show it to the ENT surgeon and see what he says.
      Apparently he's one of the best here so shouldn't be a problem hopefully.

      @bill 112 It's great that your T disappeared even if only for a while. Be sure to let everyone know what they gave you and how the procedure works out.

      Glad to hear things have improved for you @bill 112

      And @Amber, it would be great if you could just tone it down on how harsh every single comment you make is.

      The meds I'm currently on are,
      - 1mg of Lorazepam twice daily
      - 10mg of olanzipine
      - 75mg of sitraline

      I have no intention of staying on the Benzos but they are helping for now.
