I am posting this today here in "Success Stories" because I, for a long time, thought that habituation with my T was ridiculous and impossible!! As I sought treatment for my severe T, I was repeatedly told by doctors, therapists, and other people with T, that I will have to habituate (learn to live with my T). It was maddening!! I felt like no one was actually listening to me. There was NO WAY I could ever learn to live with what was (and still is) blaring in my head/ears!! The volume and pitch so incredibly high!! I couldn't sleep, became depressed and hopeless, began taking all sorts of meds, my life had been ruined! How could I possibly learn to live like this. NO WAY! Well, to all of those people that told me I would habituate, you are all entitled to an "I told you so"!! I have learned to live with it! My T is just as bad, it's never changed or modulated since it set in Oct 1 2012. Same crazy high volume/pitch, but my life is so much better now!! (Still would really like a cure!!). Due to taking charge of my life and deciding deep down to not let my T rule my life, my quality of life is drastically better! I post this because I know there are many of you reading this who are thinking exactly way I did! You think there is no way to live with T and you are filled with hopelessness. YOU CAN AND WILL LEARN TO LIVE WITH T !! But it does take effort. It takes a complete change of attitude. It will take making changes in your life, and most likely trying a ton of different therapies and things to help you deal with it. It will take support from family, friends, others with T. It's going to take a strong will! But it can be done! I am proof!! Don't get me wrong, I still have my moments here and there, and my life is not what it was before T, but I am a long, long, way from the pit of despair I was in for quite some time!! If you are in that pit. If you think there is no way out and you'll never learn to live with our T, please take heart!! I am now one of those people who is telling you that you will habituate, you will learn to live with it!!
