Hello, my name is Craig. So my story took place at a construction site. I'm an electrician and I work on commercial jobs that have all sorts of noise on them. This never effected me until one day I made a mistake that I constantly wish I could get back. I was cutting a piece of metal pipe in an enclosed area which magnified the noise. As soon as I got off my ladder I knew something was wrong. I went home that night and it persisted. I had ringing in my ears before but I knew right away this was different. Long story short it hasn't gone away and i struggle on a daily basis with it especially Bc construction sites are so loud and I'm constantly paranoid of the sounds around me. I'm even considering going back to school. I wear rap protection at work constantly but my T still hasn't gotten better. Even going out to night clubs I wear them but they don't seem to help to much and I regret going out the following morning. I do have faith that there will be a cure at some point. We just have to all raise awareness and money to the situation. I'd never even heard of T until I got it which is absurd to me. But hopefully we have breakthroughs in the future! Thanks for reading truly appreciate it.
