      On Tuesday I'll be working as a receptionist in a doctor's office. My tinnitus gets worse at night and I'll be working days. I only have tinnitus in my left ear so I always talk on the phone with my right. Is anyone a receptionist? Do u guys think I'll be ok? I'm having anxiety because I think I'll screw something up because of my tinnitus. I really need a job and it's paying $15.00 an hour.

      Don't worry you will be okay! I work retail and I have to listen to music all day and have a headset but just like you I have T in my left ear and the headset in my right! Good luck on your new job! :)

      Doctor's office huh? That will be a sweet gig, as you will have access after hours and such. You should probably bring it up after you have settled into the job.

      Just wanted to give you guys an update. I'm mostly on the computer than on the phone. So it worked out perfectly.

      Try 2 hearing aids to see if the tinnitus will be unnoticeable at work.

      I know this is a bit late but how is your job? As a person with severe anxiety I'm happy you found a new job without worrying about your T
