I am in quite the difficult place here. I have been in some form of depression for the past 11 months. I made some bad decisions in life that led to my entire world crashing down. Prior to this I had the best 4 months of my life, as my severe tinnitus somehow vanished. I was given a second chance. I was on top of the world. Severe depression in March, April, May of 2015... The bad decisions (read: legal trouble) were cleared up in May, but my depression did not lift. I caved, and agreed to go back on antidepressants (Tegretol) because I didn't see any way other out. After taking Tegretol for only two days my severe tinnitus returned with a vengeance. Now I had depression and tinnitus. Fucking great. Here's my problem: I don't see either one getting any better because they are so intertwined. The severe tinnitus I have PARALYZES me. My life is a disaster. Nothing gives me any happiness and I have no motivation. I go to therapy, but what is my psychiatrist going to do for my tinnitus. Okay. There is the idea that it got better once so it could get better again. But it seems DIFFERENT this time. WORSE. More SEVERE. I do not see a way that I can have this condition and be happy in life. Everything has been taken from me. Help.
