      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Still Under Investigation
      Just checking in to say “hi” to some of the folks I had gotten to know back when I was posting regularly. I’ve been limiting my time on the forum, because ultimately I found that it was causing me to focus too much on the tinnitus and less on trying to find ways to deal with it day-to-day -- the "day-to-day" stuff is what I need to try and stick to right now.

      And so ...
      @New Guy, @emmalee, @TracyJS, @Jiri, @glynis, @OnceUponaTime, @Michellejean, @AZeurotuner (thanks for the advice a while back!),@Luman, @fishbone, @linearb, @Ed209, @billie48, @Bill Bauer and all the others I either connected with, or who made posts that I found particularly helpful or upbeat when I was posting frequently last year -- I think about you guys a lot, hope that you're all doing well, and wish only the best for you and for everyone here on the forum.

      @Mystery Reader so good to see your name!!!

      It is important to limit one's time on the support board. I usually allow one hour a day.

      But back in 2002 when I was basically house bound I spent all my time on a support board. I learned the hard way that it wasn't the best thing for me at that time. But at the same time there was no where to turn to in real life.

      I also must stay emotionally detached from becoming close to people. Maybe this will be something I can change but not yet.

      Are you doing okay now?

      Nice to hear from you. I've been weaning off the site a bit too. I still visit when I need support which is more often than I care to admit. Thanks for checking in and I hope things are improving for you.
