      Sometimes I'm worried as I'm still a student. My working life will hopefully start sometime and that changes your life a lot. Some of us got louder T after some years. I'm worried about the duration, the chronic stage and it becoming louder, e.g. naturally or via an accident.

      Some say these are irrational thoughts as no one of us can look into the future, and any of us can have deadly accident in 5 or 10 years that we as of yet are unaware of.

      What worries me is that that chance is in my mind lower than the chance of T getting worse. You have motorcycle revs, noise accidents or neighbours that can use heavy machines. This is life so things can happen.

      For the moment I'm not confident. I'd rather have a very long slope of improvement towards total silence other than the chance of it getting worse in x time.

      2 yrs. Still struggling to finish my study. My professor is quite mad that it takes such a long time but no way to convince him otherwise. People that do not know what it is and that is part of the worry process. That they underestimate the effects
