      Tinnitus Since:
      I am 72 and have had Tinnitus for about 10 months or so. Most of the time I have been able to ignore it but it seems to make concentration more difficult. Just joined and want to learn as much as possible.--macdeknife

      T is a bugger; that's for sure. It's good to hear that you have been able to ignore it (for 10 months); it took me about 10 months before I could start ignoring it. Maybe you're not annoyed by the sound so much as the idea that it is not going away -- at least that is what I wrestled with.

      Most folks that have learned to live with T find it best when they can relax (just accept it) and we've found that simple exercise (anything) is generally good (take a walk, do some gardening, whatever). It's also best when you are busy with something (occupied).

      Hope this helps a little
