      I hear it everywhere. Its not a nice sound. Like scratching finger nails on metal. Very instrusive. Been six months. No peace. Where can i take a break? How can i go on like this? I feel no joy. I just go thru the motions. I know u think its depression. Its not. I am beyond depression. I am just numb. It has become too meaningless. I hear it all the time. Its worse when it spikes. Anyone out there been here? How to get better? I am desperate. I am.beyond panic attacks and crying. It does not help anyway. Nothing helps. How to live with a brain taken over by an insane scream? No LOL. Just ranting. No light at the end of my tunnel.

      If you have no access to hearing aids or maskers then it you have a pm3 or phone with apps ,down load white noise and set it below your tinnitus sound and play that when your like this.
      wish we could talk.
      We have the NHS and audiology can provide people with maskers and hearing aids and Im lucky to have them free on the NHS.

      I know its mental torture for you and emotionally low and You need all the support in place to help you .
      Talking therapy for emotional support and a device to play sound therapy into your ears to give you a break........
      Do what you can to stay calm ...
      Lots of love glynis x

      I am sorry. :( I hear it all the time too and nothing really masks it for me either. Please do know that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Spring always come after Fall... live goes on... and you will start feeling better and better. There will be good and bad days. It is a roller coaster of emotions but hold your ground! See if you can take something that will help you sleep and relax. Reach out to family and friends... take on a hobby... distract your mind, get busy with your life again. :) Everyday I hear it from the moment I wake up 'til he moment I go to sleep... and yes everyday I wish and pray it will go away. It sucks yes... but you can still have a beautiful life. You can still find joy, and there is always hope.... Don't give up. We are here to help you.

      @glynis-harbron yes it is constant mental torture. I never imagine people can live like this. I always thought pain is something that happens and then goes away. I never knew you can have constant pain.
      @OnceUponaTime you hear it all the time too ? how long have you had it? i feel really low today (last few days).

      All the time except in the shower or when I am doing dishes. Which I do happily, just for the peace and calming feeling it brings... I do dishes looking out my window to a beautiful lake...and its therapy for me. At least for a few minutes.. I have T for 4 years now. I am glad it is low for you today! See, that is a light at the end of the tunnel. ;) Enjoy this day.

      Ohh.. I am sorry. I'll say a prayer for you. Like I said... try to find peace and joy in the people and things you love ... look around and see that there is beauty and peace regardless of this noise in your head. When I do dishes I look out my window and see beauty and it makes me smile. We have been given a heavy load to bear....Is there anyone you can talk to today or do something to distract you?? I enjoy watching comedy on TV. I'll watch " Americas Funniest Videos" and I laugh with my kids and it relaxes me for a bit... I try to be busy all day...I do sometimes feel sad and different and almost numb like you said before... but don't stay dwelling in those feelings and moments...snap out and get out of there because it is not helpful. Find courage and strength that YOU can do this and live!. :)

      I take Ambien and sleep when I need to escape, which sadly I do far too often, I'm worried my GP isn't going to give me another prescription.

      I too escape using sleep. But i don't use drugs to sleep. When i sleep, the sound becomes softer and may even go away. Even when i am half conscious, it is not there. I live in my dreams now. I have had so many weird dreams since having T. In none of them do i have T. Maybe i should cryogenically freeze myself till they find a cure. I may have many nice dreams.

      That's good, that you don't need the drugs and the good dreams:)

      I had insomnia before this nightmare began so there is no sleep for me without medication, T only made it worse, as it does with everything.

      Pills, accupressure, ENT's, vitamins, masking, etc.. I tried 'em all for decades.
      I tried something new last year and stuck with it and I only respond to my T now when I hear it, which is once every few days. My T was vicious. Now I'M in control. Try it -
