My tinnitus noise is constant. My suffering however is not. Sometimes - some whole days - I suffer like hell. (I want to die....) Sometimes - some days - I seem to be okay. (I want to live....) Active sufferance - Passive sufferance? When I become interested in what I am reading, what I am writing, what I am doing, things go better for me. Does this ring true for anybody? (Oh sorry) Does this have the ring of truth? (Oh shit!) Er.....does this occur to anybody else.....?
