Yes, I am in the midst of hysteria. An alarm just went off next to me. And I panicked. My tinnitus hit the roof as a consequence of the noise exposure. I have a severely reactive tinnitus that goes up with noise exposure. The alarm was on Samsung 5830, a loud shrill ringing noise that is so loud, I would not be surprised if it was for hearing impaired folk. At the moment, the sounds in my head are unbearable ... and from experience, even if improvement comes, it may take days, weeks, even months to do so. I fear that it may not come ... the sound was really loud. I am seriously considering ending my life.
