Since March 2010....

Yes, I have been blessed (I mean cursed) with tinnitus. I live by an Air Force base and I listen to loud music and loud concerts. The result? Half deaf with ringing in my ears!! The left one is louder than the right one. Very annoying. I started college in January 2010. My major/study was Music and Business Technology. I had high hopes of working in the music business. Then one fine day in March, the ringging started and never stopped! I got so ******* depressed I stopped going to class. MY MUSIC DREAMS ARE CRUSHED!!! So much for that!! Now I have to be a writer or a **** star/ model. Oh well...

Cool, I'll have to check that out if/when I get health insurance. How is your hearing today compared to when you first got tinnitus?

I've had tinitus since working in construction.<br />

It can be ameliorated, so you don't have to give up on your dreams. See an audiologist so you don't go deaf.

Yea, I'll probably be deaf soon, too. It was a big deal when it started. But, then you get used to it, right? I really miss concerts, though.
