Separate names with a comma.
The title says it all
I would probably cry of happiness and relief. (I suppose you mean if it stopped permanently).
Then I'd blast some music in high volume (but not in the damaging levels of course!!!) because that is something I haven't done in a while. Then I'll lay in my bed and just listen to the silence. And vow that I'd never do anything to harm my hearing again
I would think "finally"!
But most of all, I'd just remember to be glad for the wake-up call that I need to calm down and stop stressing about everything...
Start to live my life.
Probably what i always do - work, eat, sleep
Listen to the silence, go from room to room and soak up silence. Go in the garden and listen carefully at the birds. When it rains listen to the raindrops. When it snows walk in the silence.
Cry with happiness and think now I can enjoy my life again. Oh and watch TV, but buy the best TV with the best quality sound system (not to be played loud) and sit down to enjoy it.
Blast music , lol that's how I probably got tinnitus but yeah it was good id say yeah I'm talking about a permanent stop
Spend a week in bed with the silence reading books.
Go to the forrest and enjoying the leaves blowing in the wind without the screams.
Then again, I could do all these things for 3 years with T before everything went to hell.
Better than winning the lottery ...... lots of love glynis
Probably go somewhere quiet and alone and just pray to thank God for the relief... Then go out for a night of fun with my friends. And eat a ton of chocolate. And watch TV. And listen to some music for more than 15 minutes.
derpina, you forgot something.
Hahaha, me too. But I did write "not in the damaging levels" - so yes be able to raise the volume a little without being scared. You know what I mean
Sell my shit and move, leave all T memories behind for good.
Go to a Metallica concert
Would be nice but never would I go to a loud event again.
I like Telis idea sell and move and start a new life and leave this one behind.
I am not sure exactly what I would do. If my T goes away and I guess my brain fog will go away with it. Once that happens,I will be able to think properly and I will then post my ideas here. For me , T is like living in the Twilight Zone
it has happened to me many times. first time, i was really happy. i thought... finally its over. then it came back after two days and i was devastated. then it happened again and all i did was wait for it to come back and it did. there was little joy. once it went for two days and i started to have somw hope and then it came back again. its been months since i had a silent day... not sure if it is good or bad. having a spike now.
Lie down in my bed and soak it in .
I would go back to work as a transcript editor, because I'd be able to concentrate on what people were saying without the tinnitus amplifying, which means I could stop living in poverty. I would take an RV trip without worrying about screaming kids or dogs suddenly barking. I would volunteer for the Humane Society, without worrying that the day I need to show up will be a day when the tinnitus is driving me batsh*t crazy. I would begin work on my novels again, and go out more with my friends.
Sleep. I would sleep for a week.
To be put simply,I would collapse onto the ground and cry into my hands with pure joyI've thought about this a lot and believe me there's so much more I'd do but it seems every time I think of"what I would do if I was cured"this always springs to mind first☺️
I'd probably feel emotionally ecstatic for 24-48 hours, moderately relieved for 72-128 hours, then spend 148-272 hours feeling some amount of anxiety about the condition coming back.
After that, I would expect to return to about the same level of anxiety/happiness/depression that I currently experience.
The broader behavioral changes that my tinnitus has led to -- avoidance of extremely loud environments, wearing earplugs in moderately loud environments, etc, are not anything I would revisit because I think those are fundamentally healthy behaviors.
Three to four years ago I would have told you that unquestionably my quality of life would have tripled overnight if this condition suddenly vanished, but I do not feel that way today.
I would think "Oka, Where are the cameras?"
I would do all the stuff I feared to do before t
And rally much more
I have tears in my eyes just thinking about it! I would sit outside and listen to the birds and traffic. I would turn my ringer down on my phone. I would praise God for the gift of clear hearing again. I definitely would cry as soon as I noticed.
Yeah. I would seek out all the small sounds that are drowned out by the ringing. I could fall asleep to sounds of night outside. My husband's snoring might wake me up again. I would know better what is going on in my house, because I could hear my children in the other room.
I would be very careful to protect my hearing so it doesn't come back! I already was, but it got louder than my protection could handle. My interpreting would improve!
Wow! If I dwell here too long, it could make me depressed. Not real depression... Just more discouragement.
Thank you for the small vacation from the ringing! Now back to my life as it is...
I would cry for days like I did when I first got tinnitus. But this time tears of joy... IF ONLY.
I forgot what it was like before my T...I can't imagine how I would feel...
I'd take the noose off from around my neck, climb down from the six foot ladder, I've made my home for the last 22 months and invite everyone to my house for a real party! Let's rock! };-)
@Sailboardman. It's a deal can't wait bring it on.
Visit elderly people, listen to music more often, and write more. And maybe play a board game with my friends again, and play a retro video game by myself.
Delete the word 'tinnitus' from my brain so I don't go looking for it.
Maybe look into any way possible to induce short term amnesia so I can forget the last month ever happened. - yea I know, not likely but it would be nice.
I would just cry of joy and praise God for his mercy.... I would book a vacation in the mountains to enjoy the sound of nature... I would enjoy looking at my kids run around play and scream without worrying about having a spike or t getting worst... I would just live my life to the fullest without complaining anymore!!!!
