      Stress does drag us down..and sadly, age us. I feel I have aged in the last 2 months just due to grief, let alone t and h over years. What can you do? Just learn to manage the stress better I guess....but I can't believe people are telling you that, it's just rude. You look pretty in your pp :)

      I have changed a lot!
      Physically and mentally too!
      Tinnitus related stress is as chronic as tinnitus and it can't do any good for anyone!

      Yes, especially in the last year since the continuous loss of sleep has really worn me down, plus the stress of being so nonproductive and unable to get much of anything done. I used to get compliments frequently, but not anymore. I look tired all the time and I've aged at least 5 years in the last 2. :(

      Yes. But t is so scary. I don't give a f^€&. Can't eat. Losing weight. Hollowing out. Pale. Shaved my head bald pouring oils on it. I never cried. I cry everyday.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Acoustic trauma (loud concert for 1h)
      Not sure, had some weird thing with light acne developing just a month prior to my T which makes my skin look a little tired sometimes. Since my bf more or less live with me, he goes to bed late and sometimes he keeps me up by making a lot of noise, which leads to less sleep for me. So I look mostly tired, but people often think I am younger than I am. But that is due to my Asian heritage more than anything else :)

      I think I've gotten more handsome since I got tinnitus.
      It seems that a lower quality of life can really improve one's looks.
      Or maybe I'm becoming schizo, can't really tell.

      I must have aged 6 years since I got tinnitus in 2010.
      Sorry I couldn't resist it.
      On a serious note though, severe lack of sleep, anxiety and stress definitely knocks the stuffing out of you and makes you feel older, if not look older.

      It would be pretty impossible to NOT age after getting tinnitus. Time passes no matter what.

      My tinnitus started in Feb 2016. I look like I've aged by about two months I would say.

      ....sorry I'll get my coat.

      But seriously for some reason I think I also look more handsome!
