  3. Never speak a word of it, and leave Tinnitus Talk.

  4. Never speak a word of it, nor aid others on Tinnitus Talk.

      @GSC "Take it as a lesson learned" - what lesson would that be?

      Maybe it would be different from person to person. Varying on how deeply people were affected by Tinnitus, and such. Or maybe if it was self-inflicted in some instances and to protect and cherish your ears. How dangerous loud noise can be. How loud every day noises are - how stress can manifest itself if you aren't careful. I don't know, I feel like each lesson learned could be a personal one for each person.

      I don't know, but maybe I'd remove myself entirely from anything tinnitus (excepting contact with T friends) for six months or so just to LIVE, then return to advocate and things of that sort.

      I had tinnitus for as long as I can remember. Got bad later.
      I'd stick around and when I get wealthy enough I will build the most badass headphones and earpieces that don't got passed 80 dB and sell them on the market. That is, unless politicians make it so sound devices can't be over 80 dB, then I'd be wasting my time.

      Not sure
      At first I thought that if my T goes away, I'm getting hell out of this place for good, don't want anything to do with this place. But then I promised myself that I will still be here with or without T, to help people, specially people that are new to tinnitus. This place is not that bad actually. Lots of strong and smart people and wonderful people, and you learn a lot. it's a good community.

      I honestly don’t know what I would do? I would love to say I would stick around and help others (I would definitely do a success story and stick around for a while to answer questions) but I think I would be terrified to think about it coming back and being on here would add to my anxiety, I always think as well would we have some type of PTSD if it did go?

      Ps I would definitely run around naked while playing music (still at a reasonable volume of course) crying my eyes out with pure joy and happiness.

      I would stick around, probably create a YouTube video to reach an audience of nubees and try to help in any way I can.

      Noise trauma, hearing loss
      Smile, sit somewhere in nature and listen to sounds, listen to soul music quietly, regain my brain from the damage its endured, play with my kids as I always do, cry as I always do, cherish freedom from the tyranny of tinnitus, and like Drone Draper said... help other sufferers.

      Not just move on and forget, but reach out and help, pay back free of charge. Wake up without being greeted by noise, sex without tinnitus, hugs without tinnitus, my lord the possibilities are endless. I'll settle with a reduction for starters, and the PTSD is a doozy, that's what I am focusing on now.

      Typical Daniel, rambling all over the place.

      Mixing music for long hours and too loud I guess.
      First two from the top.

      I would take much better care of my ears in the future as it seems I failed miserably.

      I would also spread the word about dangers of Tinnitus, share my own experiences and tell about this site.

      This is such an underrated condition. Even I didn't understand before T, how horrible this is.

      Well, I'm not doing much differently at all now in my life, I just have far less stress and am sleeping better.

      Tinnitus Since:
      05/2017 (H since 06/2017)
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      long term noise exposure (headphones), maybe some stress.
      Shortly after T-onset I made a heartfelt bargain/vow to the universe that if I ever got rid of T, I would do my best to still help and advocate for the cause, and I plan to stick to that promise.

      I wouldnt be on TT everyday as I am now, though. I would take periods off, but I would not reject and walk away from the T community.
