      After nearly two years I have hit the brick wall. I can't cope anymore with the T. I can't do the screeching brakes sounds,the lack of restful quality sleep, waking up with piercing hissing, the loudness of my food chewing, the constant neck head shoulder tension and pain, the ear popping and clicking, the constipation and nausea, the dreadful fatigue and brain fog, the new tones that keep appearing for no reason and the fact that this truly vile condition is getting worse. I've done CBT, thought I was getting somewhere but no, I'm literally back to square one.

      God only knows what I'll be like in another two years.

      @truesilence,
      I understand totally how you feel and how it gives you brain fog and lethargy and the sound itself.
      Its a lot to cope with but we have to.
      Have you tried sound therapy at night ?
      Maybe maskers or hearing aids might help you .
      Stay strong and push hard to make your life full of good things and not let your tinnitus win .

      Antidepressants might help you feel better too.

      We are all here for you and have a good cry when you need one .
      Sending you lots of love and hugs..glynis x

      Hey @truesilence, I feel the same way. Coming up on two years and can relate to everything you said. I hope one day it gets better for all of us. Hang in there. Hope you have a good day today.

      @truesilence
      I can totally relate. I have T from hell.
      And on a 10/10 today, piercing with 15+ kHz through my head.
      2 years and 4 months in.
      Even Trobalt does not calm T nor me down today.
      Can only pray next day will be milder.

      Stay strong.

      Can relate to this. I try to remember it is up and down all the time.
      When I am down there will be a period that I am slightly more positive again.

      T is the ultimate roller coaster ride in Hell! The only solution, is to ride it to the bottom and pray it comes back up to the top.

      I felt the same way 2 years in. I fought this tooth and nail, and as a result, felt much the same way 3-4 years in.

      I feel a lot better now.

      I think crying is very good and cathartic; if you feel the urge to cry, I say go for it. Break right down, scream obscenities at god, feel the staggering depth of your own emotions -- I think that is a lot healthier than stifling things.

      I totally understand how you are feeling. Writing this now my tinnitus is at its highest pitch screeching brakes on a railway line. The most frustrating thing is there is no pill you can take to quieten the noise. There's nothing! And that's the most frustrating thing if you are suffering from this horrible condition . All I can say is stay strong dont give in to it. You are not alone we are all hear for you.

      In the past I would have good cry and then collapse into bed, the stress would melt away and I would sleep like a baby, waking up in the morning all fluffy clouds, refreshed and ready to face the day.

      But not anymore.

      All I can say is, none of this is unfamiliar to me, thinking back about how I felt when I was 2-3 years into this mess.

      I've still got the tinnitus, for sure, but I sleep really well, and once I figured that out, all sorts of things got better and easier to deal with. I'm not going to kid you and say my life is perfect, but whose is...
