Hello everyone ! I have had Tinnitus from the time I was a child ( well over 30 years ). I don't know exactly how I got it but I have been living a very happy life and been able to completely ignore the ringing 95% percent of the time. It's been like I don't even have tinnitus mostly. But now I'm having some new problems and I realize this time it's going to be a lot tougher to get through this situation. I recently went to see an ent and was treated very badly by the doctor and now my spirits are very low. i could live with my tinnitus for the rest of my life the way it was and be fine. If only I could go back in time a few weeks I would be smiling with my wife and kids instead of looking at them and crying. Feeling sort of lost at the moment.
