Did any of those two, or two of them combined, made you drop your plans for life? How did it change, and how are you guys dealing with it? Do you still live your lives with some hope that one day someone will figure out a cure and you will be back to your original plans? What was that had to change in order to maintain descent life quality for you, and how are you keeping your everyday routine? I won't hide, I need some spiritual guidance friends. I'm on the verge on making big life decision and I'm just going haywire in managing it. The case with me is I've been writing music for most of my life and I want to build my career around gaming industry (music, or sound-design). Right now is my go or no-go decision moment. I have a reactive T (5-6 everyday, managable, but jumps to 6-7 after very basic sound exposures for a brief amount of times), and been having minor H for some time, which recently - for no particular reason (I'm living the same life as usual) - is just skyrocketing and, well, is driving me insane. You probably figure out by now that increased H = avoiding sounds = a lot of pain = no pleasure in any work with audio = no dream job whatsoever. I'm 26. I know, I know. Some will say I still have a lot of time to find something different to do in my life. But I just can't let go. It's what I'm good at. It's what I've been learning to be good at for my whole adult life. On the other side though, I am starting to feel as I need to let it go. That it will cause me to much pain in the future, and if I decide to pursue my dreams, and fight it, my whole life will become one big constant battle for normality and survival. I'm in a flux. I need to hear from you. What are your stories? Did you have a similar decision to make in your lives?
