      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I just wanted to say that ever since I first experienced T, the worst part was the lonely feeling of suffering from something that not only can't been seen or heard by anyone else, but most people have never even heard of. This is really ironic since it seems to be such a common affliction that is only becoming more common every year.

      I just wanted to take this moment to say a special thanks to those of you have lifted me up with your encouragement and stories of success with habituation and moving forward with your lives. You, and perhaps only you, understand how low T can drive a person and how hopeless it can feel in those darkest moments. A kind word can do so much help a person in those moments and if you have ever given so much as single post to pick me up when I needed it, you have my heartfelt gratitude.

      I have no idea what is going to happen with my T as time moves on. I have the nagging fear that it will grow worse and it will someday become something that I just can't bear any longer, but for today I have beaten it.

      I can only believe that whatever got me through today, can get me through tomorrow too.

      I will always do my best to support everyone who calls out for it here and offer all the advice and support I can as I learn to deal with my T in the months and years to come. For now, I'm pretty new to this and hardly have my feet under me yet, but I will do everything I can to pay back the support that has been so generously given to me already.

      I don't know who you are, but I know your suffering because it's my suffering too. You are not alone, and perhaps for now, that assurance it all I can offer you.

      Until the day there is a cure for this affliction, we have each other and I will do whatever I can for you because I know already that you'd do the same for me.

      Happy Thanksgiving Day to you and may you sleep well tonight-

      Thanks Michael for the heart-felt post. Good to know that you are doing better and that you will be willing to help others. If there is anything positive coming out of my T experience, it is the keen sense of gratitude for the generous support I had been offered during my darkest time, and that T has generated a sense of compassion for the sufferings of others, after tasting the darkness of it all ourselves. We are all brothers and sisters in this journey with T. The more we look out for each other, the less we feel lonely about our T journey. God bless you and hope you continue to improve.
