I have serious T. It distracts me all day and basically drives me nuts. I have different noises, drills, scratching, clicking, ear thumping. I have had this for 7 months. I started with soft T in one ear and escalated to a point (both ears now) where I just sit in aww of it sometimes. Gets so loud it hurts my head and ears. I really think that I'm about as used to it as I can get, I don't see getting habituated at this level. I hope im wrong. Bed time, well sleeping is my favorite time as I don't hear it while I sleep most nights. However, I do dream about it constantly. I really can't for 5 min forget about it. Anyone have this and now lead a normal life???I don't work anymore, my carreer was my life. I sometimes have a hard time even holding a conversation from the distraction. I'm young and have so many years left to hear this. How can it be done? I've tried a lot as far as keeping busy etc, and have a relatively positive additude. I look about 5 years older in the short 7 months from stress. I was hoping time would bring the vollume down or at least change the tone. My T is from ototoxcicity and sits in the upper range...I'm basically deaf from 10khz up and is replaced with all these noises. If there is anyone who beat this type of tinnitus? please let me know how!!!! There are lots of success stories here but I don't know if it's due to the sevarity of the condition. I'm a strong person but I can't see taking this for the rest of my life.
