I experienced a sudden hearing loss in my right ear 9 months ago and along with that, tinnitus in both ears. I currently wear a cross hearing aid that is helpful. In the beginning, I was sure my hearing was going to return just as mysteriously as it had disappeared. However that has not happened and I am trying to adjust to my new normal. I admit sometimes I feel overwhelmed with the idea that this loud ringing and buzzing will be in my head for the rest of my life. I get panicked knowing I can't escape it. Then I get back in control and reach acceptance. It is what it is. Also it is astounding to read how many people there are experiencing the same condition. The people in my life have no understanding of what I am going through.
