very much for your point of view. I know you are right, the problem is my
thinking and the fear inside of me. I’m working on it, but it’s a long way to go and I can’t
go as fast as I would like to. I know I
need help and I’m going to start cognitive behavioural therapy with a psychologist
very soon to change my attitude toward tinnitus. I’m doing all my best to get out of
this horrible situation, believe me. I’m also tapering off benzos and have given up
doxylamine pills too since last night. I now will only take Melatonin, although nights are rough and can’t
sleep much. If I can do it without medication, I will, just like I did 15 years ago.
I don’t know yet if things will go right or wrong. Time will tell. Wish me luck.

Without question. The years 1996 - 1999 were the worst. My whole life changed April 28, 1996 when I first started hearing a high-pitched hissing. A few months later, a very loud low-pitched hum entered the picture. It took over my life. Every spare moment I had from work was spent researching at the local library on the then-limited internet. I saw more doctors than I could count. Had every hearing test performed. No cause found, no answers. I couldn't sleep. Couldn't enjoy any aspect of life. No appetite. Every conversation I had with friends was about the noise in my head.
Eventually, I tried antidepressants, and that helped. For the past ten years I've been on Lexapro. I feel this drug has saved me from going back into that dark hole of hopelessness.
I had a bad relapse this week after being T-free for 6 months. I'm trying to weather this new storm and come out the other side (again). It will go away - sometimes for as long as a year - and then come back for no reason whatsoever. As I type this, I feel a vibration in my right ear and most of my head that wasn't there a week ago. And it sounds like helicopters are flying around the room.
The challenge never really ends. It simply manifests itself in different ways.
