It has been a little over 2 years that I have tinnitus, I've come a very long way. Still ringing but my life has been great. I started a support group on face book, not a big group but for anyone in Hawaii that found it hard to deal with like I did when I first got T. Tinnitus Talk was my main come to place and I felt safe here cause many of you understood me. And that brought comfort to me. I have been away from this site for awhile which is a good thing, my life has gone back to normal dealing with T, there are days when I just forget I even have it, and yes days when a spike will come and last 3 days but I know I will be fine. Those of you who are new to this, it will get better. I wanted to stop by and say hello to all the old timers , don't know if you remember me but I'm still going on and life is great. I still live on and believe one day there will be silence to all who suffer, I'm here for anyone who need to talk, vent, or ask me questions . Mahalo for your time ..
