      Tinnitus Since:
      Exactly 1 year ago on July 13 I acquired tinnitus.
      Things did not change much. My tinnitus sounds the same and I did not experience any miracles.
      I wish it would go away, but that seems to be not happening.
      I must live with it and somehow enjoy my life.
      I know that the only way to do so is to accept it.
      The hardest part for me is to wake up and not to think about it.
      Somehow my mind always checks if the T is there the first thing in the morning.

      Few things I have learned so far:
      - This forums rocks. (So many great people and so much valuable information)
      - The cochlea is a beautiful organ. (i spent tons of hours studying it)
      - People should not take hearing for granted.
      - Silence is golden.

      I am not ready yet to leave this forum and forget about the T completely.
      For me letting T go is he hardest part. I live with it and I do stuff I love to do, but I still dream and hope that this is temporary and some time I will experience the silence again. (i hope it happens before I die)

      We all hope it's temporary... On the flip side, staying on here gives you hope as me and many others strive to find treatments for tinnitus. Just have hope, have faith and we shall show you the way! Good luck on your journey

      All the best,

      I gave myself a pass today and went to listen to live blues today.
      The sound at the bar was around 100db so I hope I was safe with my er20. I also tried to keep longer distance from the speakers. Of course nobody had plugs except my wife and I. Band did not have any protection. It amazes me how many people expose themselves to loud music and are just fine. It is not fair but I guess that's just life.

      It's been 1 year for me too and it wasn't even my fault for me getting my T and I'm still pissed off about it.

      I hope there is a cure for all the different types of T soon. I think noise induced T that might have damaged hair cells is most likely permanent...but other T like Trauma or neurological might have a cure in the future who knows .... well the scientists need to work harder...

      I don't think it makes a difference whether it's noise of anything else , tinnitus comes from the brain and if they can find a way to stop it then they will , a cure is really close , they are doing the trials for it :) and everything seems to be going good !
