I haven't even tried since my tinnitus came. I already had extremely bad anxiety before this happened, and this added fear of loud places only makes my agoraphobia worse. So depressing. Would I be safe at movies with earplugs? How about concerts? The last thing I want is for this to get worse, but I can't stand to live like this. It doesn't make sense to me that Just because my ears are damaged now I'm more at risk for more damage than those without tinnitus, is that just another illogical fear? I am terrified now that I've recently been dumped from a very long relationship, that I will never meet anyone I relate to again. I love music, I make music, and I would assume the person I would fall in love with loves it with a passion like I do, typically thats how any relationship i've had started. Now what happens when I go on a first date with someone?... "oh by the way, I'm only 23 but I can't attend any concerts or go to any movies with you because I have a constant ringing in my ear, lets be in a relationship!" If anyone has experience going to concerts after T that was positive and knows it can be done, please help me.
