Hi first of all its not my first language so be easy with me as I do my best Ive been reading a lot of posts from this forum recently and I found that it help me realise that im not the only one suffering with this condition and it wasnt just me that making this a big thing. Ive been telling by doctors things like oh yeah its not a big deal people that develop tinnitus usually dont notice it but just when they get stressed out. Ive been gaving the usual sentence : learn to live with it. I searched a cure on internet and just found a lot of scams that makes me hate humanity a little more. So i think its time that I introduce me and explain my situation. Im a 23 years old french male from Quebec and have a passion with debate stuff, media and propaganda. I also suffer from Ocd and obsessive/intrusive idea pretty much my whole life and suffer at some times from depression by the cause of it being exhausted from trying to cope with it. Recently (about one year) I was recovering and started being enough stable to restart having a job and so on. Ive started working in an environnement with some loud noises but at my stable post it was much more quiet (I could talk with my teamates with no problems). But still when some materials was dropping (stacking plates) it makes a big noise. Nobody was wearing earplugs at my post so I assumed it was okay to do so Just after five days I started hearing a ringing and I just panic.. It doesnt leave me since (2 months) I started wearing my earplugs every other days but I had to quit because of my situation, my Ocd have relapse and with the combination with tinnitus I feel so depressed.. even suicidal. I feel like I return to phase 1, even worst because of T. I feel like all my efforts are being crush and the mountain is just to big this time, Im exhausted mentally I can ear my T over most of things if I search it except in the shower and its unbearable when I lay down to sleep and woke up. Its a high frequency like the feedback of a TV and I have it in both ears with a slice difference in frequency. I dont know if this was a factor of aggravation since Ive read some bad things about it but I was on Prozac for my OCD a long time but had stop 4 month before the onset of T (not cold turkey) because I was feeling like a robot. I am now with the ringing and OCD there for stopping me doing things to stop focussing on it. Im in so much pain right now that I want to stop being there but I dont do it because I love my friends and family and I dont want them to suffer.. and the fact that I fear to just give me big injuries and miss my attempt as Ive learn that it happened to many peoples. I want to ear if some people found ways to cope with the combination of OCD/anxiety and tinnitus or have the same shitty setting as me. I feel so trap in my own body and suffering. Im about to maybe restart taking Prozac but Im so scare that it worsen my T. Its a big chance to take but my stress level right now is unbearable I want to take the edge off. And is it me or its realist that theres not much hope for a cure with the complexity of this condition? And the fact that theyre not taking this condition seriously? Researches saying the impact of T lessen with time. I hope so people dont have a choice god damnit. Sorry for being so pessimist I cant find relief at the moment and Im a little hopeless with my situation returning once again to baseline even with a new problem that I have no control on.
