      Hey you guys! Wow it's been so long! I hope the members and friends that I used to know are still here and active! And I hope they still remember me :( hahaha! Anyways the last time I've been here i think would be September of 2014! So it's been a year wow omg :cry::eek: Well I'm here to let some of my TT friends and buddies know that I have graduated college last month! YAY! Yeah I even I can't believe I made it! I remember having T when I was a Sophomore or Junior in college? I think. And it was those times when everyone here really helped me out and till this very day I treat those people like a part of my life! I really miss you guys! And about my T, I remember posting here that it went away and came back again? Unfortunately after that it didn't go again! Hahaha yeah it stayed, some days it's insanely loud i can here it every damn time! But I guess i did 'habituate' (that's the word right?) Hahahaha :) Anyways i would looooove to hear from my old friends! If you guys ever read this please do comment :thankyousign:

      Hi Rube! Really? That's good so good to know! I came back a few times then to post positive updates. I remember those DARK DAYS when one positive thread about T can help me a lot. I wanted to make someone feel the same way. I'm so glad to hear from you! I hope we can be friends :huganimation:

      Ann ,

      I am new here but read your success story recently. It was very helpful for me being new and totally freaked out.

      Just wanted to say congratulations on your graduation and glad you are doing well.

      Hi, @AnneG !

      It is great to hear from you again, and we'll always welcome you back with open arms. I am so glad to hear that you've graduated from college, and are now truly moving on with your life.

      Yes, the right word is "habituation". You are a great example to so many people who are now struggling with tinnitus that, yes, it is really possible to habituate to the noise, and to live your life again.

      Thank you for coming back to let us know how you're doing. So proud of you!!!!

      Sincerest congratulations, and hugs,
      Karen

      Mabuhay! Welcome back @AnneG. How has life been? Your success story is often quoted by me to help encourage college age T sufferers who often wonder if they can still continue their education. Why not? You are a perfect example of that. Congrats to your graduation. Hope your left ears will recover its hearing. Take good care. God bless.

      Mabuhay! Wow billie thanks that's awesome! I hope I somehow helped anyone in anyway I could. But I've been good thanks for asking, starting my first Job as a chef at a hotel here in Manila! All those hard work finally paid off, now its time for the real world. My T though increased yesterday, new sound and new sensation if that's the right word. Left ear feels stuffy and everything sounds muffled like I'm underwater while my right is totally back to normal. T is such a big asshole -_- excuse my language, lol but I'm okay which makes me proud of myself, when I first had to I freaked out so much even though i can only hear it in a quiet room, now here I am with it roaring on my left ear again but somehow not affected as much anymore. Worrying only stresses me out, can't afford that with my job now lol. I actually posted an update on the success stories thread where in i also read yours a few hours ago. You. Are. AWESOME. :) I hope you're doing well

      xoxo

      perhaps you have exposed yourself to noise in the kitchen ? I can imagine it gets pretty loud when the pans and cutlery hits metal sinks..and guys shouting all day...I wear silicone "musician" plugs most of day in the office..18db not much but I can hear sounds and conversation fine
