      I guess i have no questions,it's good to see there's people coping with this for 20 years.It must have been
      a struggle at certain points.Still gives me hope there is a chance i won't lose my mind.

      Guess I was born with it. Never not known life without T
      Mine seems to be getting worse. I'm going to see someone about hearing aids on Tuesday. Hoping that will provide some relief. My hearing is deteriorating day by day I think.

      T is so loud right now.

      Hi,
      I have joined this forum as I have had tinnitus since 1999. I had been going to the Doctor feeling ill and it turned out that I had pernicious anemia, an under active thyroid and iron anemia. I fainted in bed one morning just before getting up and have had tinnitus ever since.
      Mine sound like someone has flatlined! I describe it as a very thin, high pitched straight line. As for hearing loss - My hearing is exceptional. I can honestly hear bugs moving. I heard a beetle walking on the wall from across the room and told my husband to go look behind the curtain. There it was. My husband couldn't believe it.

      I was seen by a consultant who shouted at me that I needed aversion or coping therapy. I yelled back that I am not an idiot, could hear her clearly and as the tinnitus wakes me up at night, I wanted to know how she could teach me to ignore it in my sleep?

      I honestly don't know how I cope. I keep upbeat - you have to, don't you - I work and have plenty going on in my life, but I would give practically anything for this torture to stop. I have some very down days and today is one of them, which is why I signed in today.

      I hope I haven't depressed anyone. best wishes

      Lisa
