      Tinnitus Since:
      The reason I ask is because people who are single or don't have children have more time to sit around and think about their tinnitus whereas people who are married and/or have children, they have people to spend time with and focus on them instead of tinnitus.

      Being married and having children can bring about tons of stress and worries.
      Being single means you have the opportunity to live and plan your life as you wish. So you can go out for a jog or watch a movie to get your mind off T whenever you want f. ex.
      I guess being single and socially isolated would be the worst possible scenario though

      Maybe. I'm single and childless, live alone. So I can only speak from that perspective. It probably depends on what your family life is and how supportive your family is. Could be better or could be worse depending on the people you live with and how busy you keep yourself. A lot of time alone unoccupied means a lot of time to focus on your problems.

      I know suicide rates are much higher for those that are singe.

      Without my husband through all this, it seems it would have been more difficult. They listen, comfort, support, pick up extra undone chores, pray... The 24/7 companion is very helpful.

      However, this can be filled in by the single with friends, family, this type of site, etc... that maybe a married
      person might not bother with. And so much proactive information here and elsewhere...a single person might
      focus more, work harder and gain support and wisdom in a multitude of other excellent areas overlooked by others.

      Praying no matter what one's situation, they can find a way back to hope and all they need to be victors in this war over this annoying issue.

      Thanks so much for this site that gives so many tools, friendships, support, information to make that happen.

      It'd be good to find a local tinnitus support group in one's own area too.

      Can't really say as I've been single since I got T, but it sure makes it harder (on me anyways) to find someone to be in a relationship with.

      Noise induced, repeated exposure with loud headphones.
      Yes, for sure.

      It's not because I thought I needed support, actually I'd feel bad putting that burden on someone else. but being single you can only think in the worst times that there's NO WAY you're going to be able to get into a meaninful relationship with these problems.

      It's not entirely true, but depression is quite a beast.

      I've been around other people's screaming and wailing bundles of wonderment.
      It was not great on my ears...

      Jajajaja no way!!

      I have 2 boys.... do you know tazmania from warner bros?... they are "worst" than that.

      Somedays, when they are unstopable and I lost control, I just give up, go to my homeoffice to get some "silence" and my T is louder because of the stress.

      But I wouln't change them... I prefer 1,000,000 times having T than not having my boys.
