Ringing ringing 

I have had a ringing in my left ear for two months now. I’ve been to an ear specialist and there isn’t much which can be done. When there is a lot of white noise during the day, I can manage. But I love alone and it is very quiet here. It’s then the ringing is so loud I feel as though someone else would be able to hear it.

The doctor said it is a middle ear problem. I’ve searched all over the Internet for solutions. Nothing has worked. This definitely doesn’t make my battle with depression easier. In makes it more difficult. The doctor mentioned Ménière’s disease but I’ve only had one bout of vertigo and that was over a year ago and I had no ear issues then.

I just pray I could catch a break. The tide keeps rising and keeping my head above water gets more difficult. Just taking it one minute at a time.


I am always learning something new about life. My life is made richer by friends, family, travel, experiences, books and hobbies.

  1. I’ve had it for a few years now and it seems to come and go. At first I too was upset about it but realized that it is probably the result of working in very noisy environments and those crazy concerts I attended when I was younger. I have learned to live with it and hardly notice it too much anymore.

      1. Oh, that’s not good. How about a few glasses of wine before bed? Works for me at times.
