And not just due to the "T" and the ear popping. I recently had a heart to heart with my wife about this who ordeal as she was tired of me complaining and bitching about it all. I finally used the "you don't know how I feel or how this shit is bothering me" card and to my surprise she responded by yes she does. She went on to talk about the sounds in her ear and how she's had them, which was way longer than we've been together. And we've been together for 16, married for 14 and I've never heard her mention this or complain about it once. I knew she has issues with migraines, to which I've bitched at her about going to the doctors (She never goes) but never the "T". I wouldn't have believer her except she was right on the money about the sounds and she basically tells me she doesn't focus on them and she's fine. I've been probing but stopped as I didn't want her to start recalling it, though she tells me from time to time she hears it. The signs were there through, like leaving the tv on at night, never being completely silent at home when she's alone, etc. Here I am, bitching and crying, while my love of my life is strong willed and doesn't like small stuff bother here. My respect meter just went up that much higher for her. Now if only I could be like her vs being so anal and detail oriented and stressed the hell out.
