      There is some Indian religion which consider tinnitus as a message from god. Stupid religion ! I would tall that god to shut the hell up ! :p

      They call it bidiboo or something like that if my memory serves me well.

      It would be funny if there weren't so many naive people who actually believe mystical new-age things like this, allowing a whole industry of scammers like Thomas Coleman to target sick people.

      I love this topic Erik!

      Maybe for the men we could come up with a new saying that would catch on all over Something like...
      "You know what they say about men with Tinnitus, dont you?" :D

      I will take a funny, positive approach to the title. Now don't get too serious about this. Heehee.

      Ya, we are the chosen ones. Why not? If you believe in pre-existence before we arrive to this earth, we are the tough cookies among the human souls who perhaps were chosen to take on this 'crucible of fire' of intrusive tinnitus because of our valiant spirit, our toughness to take on much tough challenge as intrusive T. Consider that statistically there are going to be a certain % of humans who are going to get intrusive T this life time, we might have volunteered to take on the burden to be counted among those who are willing take a spot among that % of human kind who will have to endure intrusive T, such that others don't have to take that on. And we are like those valiant wild stallions and mares who fight bravely and valiantly to refuse the saddle chain of T to rest on our freedom-loving spirit. We suffer but we fight our battle valiantly. Eventually, the chosen ones will conquer T and have our freedom back. Amen.

      And like I wrote before......it's better to think about t this way, than cry and whine all day about it.

      Haha. That is a good one, Stina. Seriously, I didn't refer to the Bible at all. I just wrote what I felt was the analogy of us taking on T and fought it valiantly. Our free spirit is comparable to the wild stallions and mares which refused to be saddled. Just an analogy. Not a religious message at all.

      Damn... that describes my hyperacusis so perfectly! Should probably put these on everytime anyone asks me how it is to live with sensitive ears.
