      Hey TT peeps, been awhile since I have been on. Sorry for the absence. Just took a break to get on with life. But recently realized...... I need you guys!! You were all there for me during the gnarly first months and years and I am so appreciative and thankful. I have habituated mostly, and thought I was in the clear, but as many of you know too well, unfortunately chronic acute tinnitus never completely releases you. Encouragement to those you read this post is my life is WAY better than it was when I joined TT!!! There is hope!! I am so thankful to my TT community, I wouldn't be where I am now without you! To those who are struggling, please hang on and soldier though, and stay connected here on TT!! Thanks for hearing me out. Peace.

      Hi Jeff M,
      Thank you for your post and update and hope you can draw strength that you will cope better again but know how rough it can be .
      I have cronic Bilateral tinnitus from Menieres and fighting a battle with my ears these last few days and been in tears.
      Staying positive but it's hard going at the moment ........lots of love glynis

      Hi Jeff, thanks for the positive update. Time and a positive attitude plus some good strategies can help a lot. It is always nice for an old face to come back to report some positives. For the newbies, the future is not always bleak and dark as the initial T suffering would try to paint a gloomy future. Things will get better. Thanks again for the nice update.

      Hey Jeff, good to hear you are more or less doing fine. I hit four years in July. I am about in the same place you are in now. You're post pretty much took the words out of my mouth..

      Take Care, Gary
