      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Unknown/loud music
      I've been struggling with tinnitus in 5 months now. I have screamed. I have cried. I have lost lots of sleep. But now I have come to the conclusion that it is pointless to freak out because I know I have to live with this the rest of my life. Besides that I'm born with autism and a heart defect I never will get rid of. I have accepted that years ago. So I thought: If I could accept that then why can't I accept my T? I've always been a fighter from the day I was born. I was bullied in school and went through many surgeries, and now I'm here, still alive, with tinnitus. It is mild but it doesn't affect me much. Because I never will have a normal life, my mother always said: "You can't have the best, but you may get the second best things you can have" - and then I realized I always have had these options. Never the best, but the second best. That's why I do avoid loud noise etc. when I'm going to parties and concerts. I stand as far from the stage as possible but that's better than going completely deaf, right? If we were deaf we wouldn't be able to do things we love the most. I know it sucks but that's life. And life has many lessons. It would be much worse if we couldn't do it. And even though I'm standing far from the stage, I still do what I love.

      This is a message to newbies here and I hope you understood what I meant.
