      Hello,

      It has now been 3 months since I said I was going to end my life. You can read the post I wrote on the introduction thread if you wish. Do I still have tinnitus? Yes but it's fading and hopefully it will fade away completely.

      I have changed a couple of things. First, I changed my diet, I just started to eat more healthy foods second I started to relax more and started a new hobby and that was creating relaxation videos. I'm lucky to live walking distance to the countryside and it gets me away from the misses. I now sleep for around 7 hours a night and I manage this by moving into my own room and using blackout blinds. I also started to take cold showers once a day. Now for exercise, I find if I do any intense exercise my tinnitus does slightly increase, so I just stick to walking.

      That's it really guys. If anything changes, I will come back and report it.

      Take care all.

      Glad to hear you're doing better. How much do you think it has faded? I feel like mine has become quieter during the day, but louder during the night! So strange..

      Have you had an audiogram and do you have hearing loss?

      Hi all. Mine was caused by kids throwing a firework at me. Lost some high pitch hearing in left ear so I can't hear the high pitch ones in my left ear.
