I have found that most T/H suffers have seen an average of 5 professionals before they see us.  And some of these professionals are chairmen of major university ENT trainng programs!

These patients have been told wrong/misleading/negative information:  We call this "negative counseling" making a person feel worse about their condition when they leave than when they arrived.  We then hve to bring the patint up to thelevel they were before this neg counseling, and start improving them. This is done through educations, as is done in this (valuable) forum.  cb

I've been told on several occasions that theres nothing wrong with me!
My Doctors have all been nice enough I suppose but I've got nowhere with it. It took me 3 months just to get a scan. Before that I was given nose drops.
My ears have been really bad today and I've got no idea why, I've not been exposed to any noise and yet I'm back to the usual. Its not me 'feeling negative' about my T either, its just the way it is.

Johnny, I can surely understand how frustrating all this is for you.

Maybe there's another way to look at it.

Here's a question ...

On a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 is "my auditory condition is of no consequence to me whatsoever" and 10 is "my auditory has destroyed my life," where would you say that you fall?

I appreciate what you're saying but I can't really think in terms of sliding scales and stuff. I wouldn't say its ruined my life (of course) but its deeply impacted on my life and upsets me constantly. I've started to read a book on CBT which I'm sure will help me with this, but right now I guess it would be around the 6 mark to be honest.

Thanks again for your reply
