you ought be sorry that you have become so arrogant as to say something that is utterly non-provable, real. any study or research that you might base your opinion on is external to your senses, and therefore illusionary. i am sure the asthma sufferer and diabetic believe their conditions are "real" too. even if they are to an extent, who is more likely to overcome his demons? he who says "these are real and incurable, save for the treatments that must be provided to me." or he who says "i'm not sure what this is, but i hope it isn't here tomorrow."?
honestly, i am looking for advice or suggestions from people who have gone through this in the past, or possibly going through this now. i am not sure why you're calling me arrogant because of that? i feel that even though you've somewhat attacked me, i have been very nice to you and have thanked you for your input each time, even though you've seemingly belittled everything i have said.
i understand that you disagree with me and others when we say that tinnitus is real - i get it. but there is no need to be rude about it, when i am on here with a legit concern of mine.
i only hope that you take this into consideration and no longer respond to this thread - only because i am here looking for help, not for put downs.
thanks again for the input, and have a nice night.
