      Reading your reply to Christian.
      You mentioned you helped a person on one of the tinnitus boards with free TRT therapy,
      with the instruction he must stay off tinnitus sites.
      Is this the missing link for some of us?

      I mentioned it only because Christian had asked me for a TRT testimonial - and besides my own, it's the only one I've seen with such detail. See point #6 at

      There was only the one tinnitus site on the Internet back then (1998) - an unmoderated usenet newsgroup with a very toxic environment. I did not want him to be exposed to all the negative counseling there at the time.

      The truth? The truth is that I think the missing link has less to do with tinnitus boards and more to do with folks not treating their own tinnitus like a serious problem that deserves proper attention from a clinician who is knowledgeable and experienced in the field.

      That's what I did back in 1994 - I realized that I had a very serious problem, and I found a clinician knowledgeable and experienced in the field who could help me. His clinic was some 700 miles from my home, but I would have gone 7000 if need be.
