heya out there. I need help...I can't deal and Im scared. I woke up with Tinnitus on the first day of this year 2015. happy new years right? It was the result of taking 5 days worth of Wellbutrin and being the lucky 1 in 10k that has the irreversible side effect of "ringing in the ears." I went off the meds the minute it happened but then since then I have had 40 days of severe ringing which I suppose is never going to stop. I cry every day sometime 4 or 5 times. I hit my head just trying to make the ringing stop. I try to focus on my work but its unbearable, I can't sleep I can eat and my depression (ironic that the anti-depressant caused this!!) is worse. I look at my friend and get so jealous that they have peace in their ears. I don't know how to manage the noise in my head. I have been a person who cherishes silence and peace and quiet and to think I will never have this again is beyond comprehension. My whole life has changed.. I can't go into bars or resteraunts as it makes it worse I can't focus on projects and I have no energy . I am completely changed persona. I just hear this hissssssssssing even worse. Please some one tell me what helps !!
