I hope everyone on here is doing well and still trying to overcome this battle with tinnitus. I can no longer take it, I won't be on here anymore. Tinnitus and hyperacusis has literally cost me my life, i've lost everything, family, friends, relationship, I couldn't even get a job in fear of my tinnitus worsening from loud sounds. The disability office denied my case twice....... I have NO future my life is over and im only 25. All I can say was that I tried, I tried to live with this and I failed, feeling more alone then i've ever felt in my life. You don't just get tinnitus, you also get anxiety and depression. Who wouldn't be depressed when a horrible noise in your ears ruined your life, where can we go if loud sounds will give us a spike......whats the point if we are living in isolation and complete fear. I hope that others on here can get through this. I just can't, ive tried for a full year and in the process lost everything. I want my life back so bad but that's impossible, tinnitus stole my life. I wish everyone on here the best, try to continue living.
