      Hey everyone!

      It's time to feel better its time to live your life. Do not let tinnitus kick your ass. You have it inside you to move on and make a life for yourself. Straight up fuck tinnitus its just a damn word. Make it whatever you want and re-name it. I have T pretty damn loud and I go to work and come home finally a normal feeling person. It took a while but I habituated to the point to where in honestly do not give two shits about T. Please I am telling you it will either go away or you will habituate to the point where it is like its suppose to be there and you will not be bothered by it. Please give it time and you will heal I promise!!!

      Thank you so much! That is a great description for habituation..I keep hoping I don't have to "talk myself into it', I hope it just feels like it is supposed to be there! I think I feel moments like that..so hopefully they get to be bigger moments! Thanks again!

      How loud was your tinnitus?
      Unfortunately I have severe hearing loss lt ear
      And loud tinnitus, I can hear it while on jet plane
      I wonder how long will it take me to habituate?
      It's been 3 long months of hell!

      3 months is a while, but not in T terms. I was a wreck until about last month and I'm doing a lot better. I still have my days, but better.

      Are you deaf in the one ear or can you get a hearing aid? Hearing may be instant relief for you.

      Eventually you will harden yourself to it. Whether it goes away or not. You will get to the point where you won't give a shit about it, but you have to let it happen.

      I understand your worry and I've been there.

      You will get better most of us do and there is a million people who had/have T who used to be on the forum and left because they are much better now.

      Thanks John, since my SSHL my T remains loud and I can hear it over everything. My only improvement has been my anxiety, I can now concentrate despite hearing the loud hisssseeeeeee
      I do feel depressed but I am trying to function
      I started acupuncture and electric brain stimulation
