My girlfriend was very supportive in the begging, when I thought this would go away in a month. Since a couple of weeks ago I noticed she changed her stance. She started saying it couldn't be that bad, That I should go to the hospital and take a look at people who are really suffering, that people go through cancer everyday and I should be ashamed of making a big deal of just a noise in my head. I still got some hyperacusis, she actually clapped her hands, like: Stop being a child, it's only clapping. She acted like I was a child making a fuss about this, should stop complaining and "be a man". In the end, she told me she wanted a real man by her side, not some child like me. I got T for 4 months now, I have been trying the "back to silence" method in the success stories, but at night it's hard to keep my poker face. I was really feeling a little better, but yesterday I had to use Benzo (clonazepam) to sleep. I don't want to keep it, but I went crazy yesterday and don't wan't to let anxiety/ bad feeling creep in. Sorry for the rant. Tinnitus doesn't give us scares to show, exams to "prove" what we hear. You guys from all people could understand what I'm talking about. I left feeling like s#it.
