      I'm sick of all these medications and magical potions that claim to take away tinnitus.

      Wanna know the real cure?

      Well here it is. It's called living your life like before. Don't sit there and waste your time trying to wish away something.

      Things happen for a reason.

      You have T because you have the capability to rise over it. You have the ability to not let take over your life. I am 15 years old. I got T very suddenly 4 weeks ago. I could no longer enjoy music, the only thing that keeps me sane. I went to the hospital. Told me I was fine, it was a minor sinus infection, and gave me antibiotics. 2 weeks later, my T is still here. The antibiotics caused more problems such as constipation. Medicine just causes more problems.

      Yeah, I might have broke down a few times and cried. My grades at school were slipping because I was depressed. No music for a while. The thing I love has stabbed me in the back.

      But you know what, I'm still living my life. I go to the movies often, I still listen to music, I write and draw in silence.

      I have over 60 years to live. I'm not going to let a small inconvenience mess up my future. I am going to do the things I love.

      I am no longer looking for a cure anymore. I am not taking anymore medicine for allergies and sinuses; or whatever else they claim is causing this problem.

      I am living and loving life just as I did before. I hope you guys too.

      Congrats Kazue.
      youve reached acceptance. So many who have habituated state that the turning point for them is the moment of acceptance.

      Enjoy your life and thanks for the positive post

      Thank you. I meant this as a positive story but it seems like some people were looking for an actual remedy. Thank you for understanding. I try to be optimistic. Good luck with your T.

      i think there is a lot of hate around here.
      you need to take the consideration that the OP is 15 and have a different outlook
      that other tinnitus suffer.
      sometimes you have to be understanding
      and dont be hurtful on your comments, we all are in this together.
      lets respect each others outlook and perspective.

      This is success for Kazue so it should be in the success stories section. For most of us it is the only type of success we will ever know!

      Just be careful to not make it worse. Because it can get much much worse if you don't respect your T. Live your life but find a balance.

      @Kazue
      Happy for you that you manage to see it this way. I also do all the things that should make me happy, in particular work, read books, watch movies, listen to music, spend nice weekends and vacations with my wife, planning to have a baby with my wife etc. . The only difference between us is I don't or I can't enjoy these thins to full extent because of the anxiety I experience related to T. Being constantly anxious makes my every day a battlefield when I have to control my emotions and not let panick attacks and anxiety control my whole day. I've always been prone to anxiety and pretty nervous person, so T being additional irritant makes my life difficult. That's why I'm not giving up looking for a solution that would reduce the symptoms. I'm gonna try ear electrostimulation, laser therapy, rTMS and whatever is there even with just anectodal evidence of efficacy. Is it bad that if you suffer you look for any possible solution for a relief? In my opinion no. I miss silence and I don't think anything can change that. Meanwhile I try to live my life as normal as possible doing things I used to like prior T.
      All the best to you in managing T, hope you can find internal peace with T which I have difficulties to experience.

      I lead a perfectly pleasant life, and while I'm studying I still spend time on fixing tinnitus from every angle possible. You and many others make it seem like you have to choose either one or the other, but these are not logically mutually exclusive...

      Yes, you are correct. There is nothing wrong with living your life while searching for a cure. I personally don't think that way. T is a part of me that I don't want to erase. All these bullshit pills and surgeries either help you or not. I do not like the uncertainty of these so called remedies. So, I live life without worrying about the "what ifs". You worry yourself self doing that. That's what feeds T. Anxiety. Fear. Constantly questioning. I choose to walk in life with my T until the day I die. However if you have a different mindset, that's fine. Good luck with your T. I wish for nothing but success in your life.

      There's nothing wrong with that. Try to help people who's doesn't have a positive mindset. Find a cure for the people with weak mental health and can't accept things like T, thrown at them. I fully support that.

      Wow, some of you guys act like kids my age. Grow up please. Some of people are 2 times older than me, be a respectful figure for the younger community. What are you guys, pre schoolers? Bashing a teenager who lives life to the fullest potential. You need to accept this condition. If it wants to leave, it will. You were giving T because you're strong enough to handle it. I am giving you guys a permanent cure that will ease your life and here you are in denial. Anxiety, fear, and stress are all negative emotions. This will indeed drive up your T. If you learn how to control them and live your life, you will be cured of T. T will no longer bother you because you give no fucks about what life throws at you. You guys are so constricted to believing medicine and procedures; and fail to realize power is in the eye of the beholder. You have the power to tell T to shut the fuck up and stay in the background. This is message isn't directed to all of you. And I thank everyone for your support and comments. There are some people who are trapped in illusion and are missing the point. I wish the best for all you guys. Good luck with life.

      Some of the comments on this thread brought a smile to my face and I thank you all for that. I admire Kazue's positivity and zest for life at what the future might hold. And why not, for tinnitus isn't an easy condition to come to terms with, especially within such a short time of just four weeks! We all can remember what life was like at that tender young age - when it's so easy to see the world through rose tinted glasses. So go easy on her..lol... I just hope this optimism isn't short lived, because if Kazue returns to listening to music through headphones, and attends gigs or the movies without using ear protection, then she might return here sooner than she thinks. So please be careful Kazue and I wish you well.
      Michael

      Yeah, life was pretty easy before I got T and now it's easier. Optimism is the best option. Once again, I respect your opinion about headphones. However, being the rebellious teenager I am, will continue to listen to music. I am aware of the dangers but I'm not going to let that hold me back. Don't worry, people like me learn best from experience. Music is what got me into this mess in the first place. I simply play music on the lowest level I can hear on my phone while doing homework. My work improves with the help of funky rhythms and beats. I'm actually planning to attend a concert next year. This is something I don't play around with. I will be wearing both musican earplugs and over the head protection. If the the movie theaters are fairly loud, just imagine a concert. I know earplugs aren't going to provide bone protection but whatever. I can die happily after going to this concert.
