      I am at a point where I am living my life--driving my own bus as you say. I have good days and bad days but the bad days are no longer like they were. I am working, socializing and just living. On bad days I still go on with my life and I don't let my T change any plans. I am forgetting to listen for my T for hours at a time. It's like 'aha, it's still there" when I realize I haven't heard it in a while. My question is this: should I stop posting on the forum? I've noticed that I am more aware of my T when I post here. I hope to help newbies but I want to continue with habituation and I wonder if being on a T forum just feeds my T--yet you are here so I'm not sure.

      Thanks for all your help. You have been a bright spot in this journey.

      What? Stop posting here? If you do that, then how in the world are we going to learn all about that grandchild-to-be of yours! Congratulations, by the way. :)

      Being more aware of your tinnitus while you are here is one thing. Being bothered by it is something else. If being here causes you to be more bothered by your tinnitus, then I would back off.

      Just my opinion, FWIW.

      I want to thank you for you answer. Posting here does not bother my T--it just makes me more aware of the noise--I'm no longer bothered when I hear it so, I can stay! Yay!
