My ears have rang from the time I wake up till the time I go to sleep since October 1987. I remember when it started and at first I thought it was a sign I was losing my mind. But I made the decision early on I wasn't going to let it bother me, and it hasn't for the most part. It's quietest when I wake up and gets louder the more tired I become. There have been times I went to bed to get relief anf sometimes when t kept me from going to sleep..What a joy that was, for me, before the crush of tinnitus …
I guess I'm lucky though. The sound is most closely described as the sound cicada make and I can never tell when they are really out or not. I told a friend of mine that once and he looked at me like I told him I was hearing them, so I kind of kept that to myself. I was a member of a tinnitus forum briefly and those people suffered from it, some to the point of wanting to commit suicide.
It's an even tone in each ear and I have excellent hearing. I listen to music through headphones almost constantly and did for years when I was a landscaper and worked in factory. If it hurts my ears I can tell I've got it up too loud, but it's the same volume as the music and doesn't interfere with me hearing it. I never have taken anything for it.
I'm glad to hear it. You should always remain open to constructive criticism. Tone the tunes down to a more relaxing tempo, cut your mystic rhythm down to match, slow down on the mouse movements and maybe flash a text message across the screen about what you're doing. It will look more professional and be easier to follow than you typing it out live, mistakes and all in a terminal.Im gonna pay attention for them.
I'm a shameless self-promoter with over 20 years experience promoting myself and my websites going back to GeoCities. The one thing I learned is you've got to get out there and pump up the volume about yourself and make a sales pitch so people notice you. Leave a link whenever possible.
I know what I 'm doing even if it's not apparent from the start, because I'm a Talker and a word juggler without peer.
And I see in you, young Turk, yes you, the untrained talent of a tongue twisting tango tirade turned Texas Tornado troll tag team takedown Talker of Titanic Turgidity.
