      @Cheza - just to explain myself a little better;
      I don’t measure, monitor, describe or compare.

      What I do is - at the start of my meditation session each morning, I actively listen to my tinnitus, for a few seconds, until my ‘tummy breathing’ and my deep relaxation takes me away.

      To me it represents:


      EAR - for short.

      So how is your book selling? I was just curious. :) A friend of mine told me she knew someone who had tinnitus and if I had any advice. I told her about your book and I think he downloaded it. Thanks for writing it! :)

      Sales are kind of poking along. I don't do any marketing and so have to rely on good reviews, which is a slow process.

      Thanks for passing the word about the book, much appreciated! I hope your friend's friend gets some benefit from it, meaning a real improvement in his tinnitus. It's a long process. I'm at my 4-year anniversary and having more and more mild days, but it took some real effort on my part not to get discouraged along the way.

      The effort even creeps into my dreams. Last night I dreamed I was describing my tinnitus to a couple people, and then I stopped myself and said, "Not supposed to describe it!" That's from Terry's "Back to Silence" method. So I guess by now it's really ingrained into my subconscious to give the tinnitus as little attention as possible, even though it isn't easy. And I know from past experience that when tinnitus is severe, it's almost impossible.

      Thanks again, and best wishes to the fellow with tinnitus. ;)

      I love your book. I've been reading some of it almost every day when I go to the coffee shop. I laughed at your comment above regarding describing the tinnitus! That was funny. Lol (I just read the "Back to Silence" part in the book last week). I also recommended your book to my son-in-law, as he has tinnitus too.
      Thanks for writing this book. Take care :)

      Loud sound via earbuds from a digital device.
      Bought the book via Kindle. I have read several books on tinnitus in the past. Read a lot of stuff as well over the years on tinnitus online and via ATA.

      By far this is the most comprehensive book I have seen. I have learned a lot about options for addressing tinnitus I had not read about before in the book with tons of neat links. Wish I had this resource when I was a newbie, but I say with a smile, it is helping me now.

      Thanks for doing the work Laura. I am sure you are making a huge difference with this book. I had not noticed it on Amazon but saw it here on this post so bought it. So this website made the difference.

      Congrats on your book. I am sure it will be a great help to many people. I find my own tinnitus is a daily mental battle with myself which I find I am winning most days though I do have my moments.

      Hey Laura, I was just curious how many copies you have sold so far? :) I really appreciate you taking the time to write that. Also, since writing this book, have you thought of anything you wanted to add to it since it was first published? Will there be any new versions in the future? :)

      Hi everyone,

      I am sure you are hearing about the onset of sudden tinnitus from the COVID-19 vaccine.

      I had this happen within 24 hours of receiving the first COVID-19 vaccine on 1/22/2021. I thought I was crazy. I had never heard of tinnitus. I thought I was alone and visited my doctor and ENT and all my textbook tests were negative. I was told I had to deal with it and that there was no cure.

      I kept searching the internet everyday and I found a small article about J & J reporting 5 cases of tinnitus on Drug Discovery and Development by Brian Buntz on March 11th. People started writing in to this article and the stories were just like mine!

      I then found Laura Cole's book Living with Tinnitus and it helped me so much!

      I have been recommending her book as everyone is being told there is no cure and we have to live with it.
