      Would you go back to playing, performing?

      Would you be more protective of your ears?

      Or has tinnitus given you auditory PTSD?

      These are questions we should be asking ourselves because there are people working hard to cure us and before we know it their efforts may bear fruit.

      With tears of utter joy I would return to my calling.
      I would definitely be super-protective of my ears!
      Alas, currently this is but a dream...

      If it was guaranteed to never come back? I'd go and sing in a Nightwish cover band.

      Loud music/gigs probably
      I saw them last month, they were magical.

      If MuteButton works on me I will go to more concerts, that one last month was my first in 2 years.

      stress/loud concert
      I'm still in a worship band playing the electric guitar. We're not very loud and I play with custom molded plugs. Thought about quitting but that would remind me too often why I don't play anymore. I really do think the volume we play is safe.

      Stress? Who knows...
      Never played, but what I do miss, is going to a night club. I just bought supposed to be very good earplugs. Now the christmas festivities are round the corner, i'm sure the opportunity will appear but i'm not really sure what to do yet...
