My "T" came on very suddenly one warm July day in 2012 whilst standing chatting in the kitchen. It has never left me since. Like all sufferers I panicked at first and could not come to terms with the condition. I then settled down once I realized that I was the only person who could help deal with it. I also quickly learned to steer clear of the vultures queuing to make money from my misery. I learned how to manage my "T" using thought process and masking sounds. I would get about 3 days natural respite a week allowing some normal life and some proper sleep. Unfortunately, I now seem to be locked into an incessant high pitch scream in the center of my head which does not relent.
Desperation is creeping in and the lack of sleep is awful. I just do not know how to carry on at present. I think the only option is drugs to help sleep and pray for a break through in treatment soon.
One thing I do know with absolute clarity is that "T" preys upon negative feelings. Beat those and you reduce the effects of "T". So, here we go another day in paradise, at least it is not life threatening.
