      Tinnitus Since:
      Hi guys! Its been a little over a month since I got my tinnitus and I can gradually say I've become habituated! The first two weeks were terrible, I was depressed but then after that my brain no longer perceived the sound as threatening I assume and it became less of an issue! I realized I could not let something such as faint and mild tinnitus affect my life. Now I can hear it only when its quiet and I listen to it. Fact is guys we'll never ever really experience true silence, we will always hear some sort of noise. Not all silence is golden. I guess what I'm trying to say is give your tinnitus some time, as time heals all wounds. I'm still hopeful that one day I'll be completely cured but I'm not gonna hold my breath. So hang in there guys! You can choose whether T dominates you or you dominate it.

      Its almost one months since I had tinnitus. I can cope with it, but sometimes I do feel a little annoying.

      Great - Thats awesome. Its taken me 6 months but I am feeling I am getting there aswell.
      My main problem is that I couldnt accept what had happened to me at a young age having always looked after my ears...

      However as we know life is a b*tch and once you accept that its happened you are half way there....

      It is also hard to accept there are Zero Treatments aswell.....

      I'm sure in a few years time - T will be dispatched with a simple Pill and will be regarded as a very minor condition...

      HFHL and stress

      I am really happy for you--habituation of mild tinnitus in only a little over a month. I only wish I had mild tinnitus. It took me nearly 16 months to partially habituate to moderate intrusive tinnitus and I consider myself lucky because so many have severe tinnitus and never get the low tinnitus days that I have.
