      Just curious how many people on here are married to or are in a relationship with someone else with tinnitus?

      Did you know they also had tinnitus before you started dating? Or was it kind of a surprise when you found out?

      My gf hears nothing but silence, but my grandmother has a loud hissing T and lives a happy life. She used on her T an approach similar to "back to silence" and doesn't hear it unless she wants to, pretty impresive

      My wife and I have tinnitus. She never complains about it. I do all the time. She's very understanding but not just because she has it, but because she's that type of person. I guess I lucked out.

      My gf has minor noise induced tinnitus with very little hearing loss, I think it's hard for her to understand real tinnitus and hyperacusis. Until you have it, you aren't going to get it.

      Me and my boyfriend have tinnitus. After I got my drug induced T, he also developed it out of blue. Mine is very, very severe already but his T got so bad lately that he needed to see a doctor. He has slight hearing loss. I'm 24 and he is 22. Very tragic...
