Hi Good Folks here at Tinnitus Talk, I wanted to pose this question to you, not so much as "Tell me about your world", but to consider and "Think" long and hard about your world. (All of it being t related of course.) So here's a set of questions to promote the thought process: 1. Is your world - outside on the street - noisy? 2. Do you get away from that noise - ever? 3. Take walks in nature - or the park? 4. Get to the beach, where nature provides natural masking - the sound of waves on shores? 5. Do you have late nights, not getting enough sleep - apart from t interruption? 6. Is your diet good - no processed sugars, no saturated fats, zero fast foods, no MSG, zero GM foods? 7. Drink good clean water, filtered, not bottled - and especially never from the tap!? 8. Drink too much alcohol, or equally as bad if you don't drink alcohol at all, tonic water? 9. Do you get enough vitamins, minerals and amino acids? 10. Ever tried natural super foods that are rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids - not supplements!? 11. Stressful job - ever considered something different, or put your passion to the test - as your job? 12. Thought about having relaxing massage, or even better chiro-massage? 13. Have anybody to talk too, who understands your difficulty - apart from this fine website? 14. What would you do differently if you didn't have t - would your world still be the same? 15. When was the last time you laughed 'til you cried - or at least enjoyed a good laugh? 16. Like playing video games - the ones where you get to kill lots of people and feel better? 17. Watch TV, like reality shows - you know the ones that are as far from reality as you can image? 18. Read newspapers - or worse still, watch the news? 19. Take medication for something - is there a natural remedy that can be a replacement? 20. When you try something new to reduce t - do you stick with it, a week, a month, 6 months, a year? So, my point is this - yes we have tinnitus and/or hyperacusis, and yes it's debilitating, frustrating, and for some almost impossible to live with . . . SO WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT? All of the above has an effect upon t, tried them? All of them? There are loads more too, perhaps you'd like to mention your positive experiences on this thread - things that you've tried that make you feel better, not just the t, but your well being in association to t . . . ! well-being noun: the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy. Thanks for reading!
