      Hard to believe how fast yet yet another year has gone by.

      It's the holidays season again, so I'm taking this early chance to wish everyone happy holidays. We've seen many new faces during the year, and for me it's been an honor to be a part of this community. Hopefully it's made a small difference in some people's lives by trying to provide valuable information and compassionate support.

      Markku, where would we be without you? What you have accomplished is amazing; you have brought people from all over the word together to comfort, educate and support each other. I was telling my audiologist today about this board, that it is an intelligent and respectful online community so different from many others.

      You and everyone else here got me through my early dark days.

      Hi hi hi, @Cher69! I have missed you and thought of you often. So I have finished with my Neuromonics; I definitely am much improved over a year, although sleep is a big issue, just like you. I had insomnia before T, so I am spending next year working on my sleep problems, which seem to be neurological vs. sleep apnea type (or even caused by tinnitus, although T has made it worse). But for now: I am done with tinnitus treatments. Just gonna live with it for a bit and see how it feels.

      Happy holidays and hugs to you, your hubby, your daughters... oh, and Dylan, of course!
      xxoo, Diane

      Hope is a very elusive gift to find in what appears to be a hopeless situation. Markkus, you and your creation have given so many that hope. You are saving lives (I know first hand ). Thank you ever so much. Mohammed is moving the Mountain! Happy Holidays to All!

      Hello my TT Friends and Family!! Despite my recent absence from TT, I still care for and support you all!! I know for some (maybe many) this may sound tough or impossible, but I challenge you (& myself) to enjoy the holidays to the best of your ability DESPITE your T!! (y):) Tinnitus tends to rob us of joy and happiness.:( Buy, even if just for just a few days, especially if among friends and family, lets all do our best to ENJOY life during this season. It's hard and takes effort, but it IS possible!

      Happy Holidays and Thank You Markku, Steve and all of you who have made this forum such a precious resource!!!! Blessings to you and to all here on TT who are battling T. You WILL be victorious!! :)

      Same for me. My head is buzzing like always. But I wanted my family having a great day. Suffering can wait for one day. So played new games on the Xbox with my sons.

      Thanks my friend. Your posts helped me a lot in the beginning, and still help.
      Your T started exactly one year before me. How do you feel now?
      Can you put your T into the background? Life normal again?

      BTW, when my wife read that you live in "La Jolla", she said: Hey, we were there already. One of our two visits in the States. :)

      Hey Martin (which is actually my last name!!),

      My T is still with me for sure, but it doesn't rule my life! It is a nuisance, but no debilitating. Once in awhile I have a bad day and let it get to me, but I recover quickly and move on. I am determined to not let it own me! And I am winning, and I am confident YOU WILL TOO!! When I was at my lowest, I NEVER thought I would be where I am now. So cling to HOPE my friend!!(y);):) It will happen. Don't give in!! Just conquer one day at a time brother!

      Yup, beautiful La Jolla is my home. I love it! I hope you enjoyed your visit, and hope you will visit again!! If you do, let me know, I'll buy the first round!!!:beeranimation:

      Peace to you and your family!!

      Such a good looking dog. How lucky you are. I love dogs; in fact, almost any animal, but dogs are my favorite. When I retire, I plan to get one. Your's looks like a winner. Great name, Toby. The photo made me smile.
