      I have to see an audiologist tomorrow about treatment but I don’t even know how I’m going to get through the night.

      Tinnitus is so loud and there are so many noises, plus the hyperacusis. I’m so scared I’ll never be me again because too much damage has been done.

      When it gets to full volume it’s like it’s my whole head and ears are full of noise. Like I’m just hearing these horrible noises and nothing else.

      I just hope whatever they suggest I have the strength to fight as I don’t know anymore if I do, I really don’t. I’m even drinking which is dumb but I’m beyond desperate now.

      I’m sorry for always complaining everyone x

      Hi Nicola8478

      So sorry to hear but stay strong and try and get a good night's sleep. It might be helpful to do a little preparation (e.g. by writing down when it all started, how you feel, possible triggers etc) as it is easy to forget stuff when being asked questions whilst being overly anxious at the appointment. Hope the audiologist is attentive, patient and helpful. Feel free to post your experiences tomorrow write
