I am going to see Tool tonight in a pretty big stadium venue. Before I begin, I know the risks of this, making my tinnitus worse would be devastating. However, the existential depression I've experienced from not being able to live my life or do the things I want to do has been weighing on me so heavily that I'm not sure this is a life I really want to live. So I'm going to try. I purchased some expensive musicians plugs, and then opted for some heavy duty foam ones instead. I am prepared to leave if I feel like I can't tolerate the levels. I plan on taking breaks every 30 minutes or so. I know most of this is probably anxiety, as I'm able to go into bars and listen to music relatively loud in my car (I'm sure it will be much louder at the concert, but hopefully the plugs are suitable). Anyone that can offer some support... that has tinnitus and still attends concerts, it would mean a lot to me in calming my anxiety. Not everyone feels the way I do about concerts and I understand why someone would choose to just not go, but music is a huge part of my life that I feel empty without it, and just depressed that I'm not in control of my life. Thanks for anyone who responds.
