To preface, I have had tinnitus for as long as I can remember, I thought it was the sound of silence as a young teen. But the past month it's gotten worse... As I'm writing this I am sitting at a table near a busy walk-way at a shopping mall with tears streaming down my face (very embarrassing, but I'm at my wits end) It feels like this noise is consuming one whole half of my head, its making my right eye burn and water, but most of all it makes me want to die. I'm only '20' years young and my hearing is atrocious, how will it be when I'm 40? There is no hope for the future. This is my last resort. I don't feel like I can live to make it to my hearing test on Monday... Does it get better? Like, at all?
