      Hey everyone,

      I'm going to get off the forum for a while. I think my brain needs to stay away for a bit.

      My anxiety is kicking my ass lately and I keep getting those stupid fleeting tinnitus episodes.

      Also I think going to so many doctors with in the last couple months and not improvement is messing with me.

      If I don't come back to the forum I want everyone to know you're awesome people and thanks for the help over the past 7 months!

      Hmmm... as late as this week, you were explaining to others how you had habituated:
      And now you are telling this community that you - yourself - are not getting better. Have you heard about what is often called "false hope"?

      @foryourinfo I think he's trying his best. Tinnitus takes us on an up-and-down journey. Let's just hand over a little grace to him and wish him the best. We've all been there. And also, let's all keep some REAL hope alive. Hope pulls us forward and has a good purpose. <3

      My T isn't bugging me its my tmj and jaw issue. My Tmj was doing great and now its flaring up again with new pains.

      Sorry I didn't explain that well.

      No need to get defensive and make those kind of accusation. I think you may have deeper issues if you felt the need to find some older post of mine to compare to this one.

      Also my anxiety, tmj and some negative posts are what's driving me away from here.

      I can't stay habituated reading things that make me depressed and anxious.

      Not so fast. The quote I mentioned was taken from the section called "Success Stories". Read the entire thread which starts with this quote:

      Like I wrote, the post was taken from this week - Tuesday to be exact. That's just 3 days ago. Not exactly an old post, right?


      You wrote you have problems with fleeting tinnitus (that's not TMJ - is it?):

      So much false hope here.

      This is hard enough of a situation without giving him grief.

      I don't think it is about giving the OP grief or not. It is about all those who read his success story, and, who then happen to see his next post. How do you think it makes those people feel???

      Perhaps the posters in this thread should consider picking up a copy of "The Emperor's New Clothes".

      People who -unsuccesfully- operate under different aliasses on this board *really* have some issues..
      Maybe one of the long-term side-effects of stem cell therapy gone wrong?

      Well, well, well........ seems to me you complained about the "false-hope"-problem yourself??????
      I do not need to worry about whether I am fun or not at parties. I don't go. Too many fake people you see.

      You don't understand the difference? You're being a proper c*nt to one person in particular.

      This how you get off?

      Wow, wtf is wrong with you? Snarky much?

      This is one of the reasons I enjoy moderated forums. They take out the trash often.

      How is it that this guy is allowed to post here with impunity, creating new accounts just to attack others. Perhaps he should seek some help. @Markku
      Seems clear that he created this account strictly to respond to this poster.
