Hi all! I'm new to the forum. I've had tinnitus after a bad car accident in 1989. Wow - 27 years! My hearing loss has been minor although the T itself has increased in volume. I have it in both ears and REALLY miss silence. I have a white noise machine that sometimes helps me sleep at night but the noise has gotten so loud I hear it over all daily noises. At the office the tinnitus competed with the high pitched noise from the computers and fluorescent lighting, but after becoming gainfully unemployed I don't have THOSE distractions anymore. Anyway - just wanted to introduce my self. I plan on reading through everyone's post so I can become familiar with the gang. Happy Saturday!
