Hi This is my first post as a new member. I have suffered from depression and anxiety issues most of my adult life. (I am male age 50) Just over a year ago I developed tinnitus (ringing in ears)..I became so depressed and suicidal I had to be hospitalized for about 2 weeks. Gradually as time went on I learned to manage the ear problems and the depression, I did have to quit working because I could no longer function in my job. Starting early this year I found a wonderful counselor and a psycharist to help me and manage my meds. I was doing great until about 10 days ago when the ear ringing came back with a vengence. Since then Ive been having suicidal feelings again. It breaks my heart because after a year I had regained interest in life, my marraige, and my daughter who is getting married next month. I am so scared and I dont want to go back in the hospital, because they cant fix my ears and I dont want to worry my family like I did a year ago. Any words of encouragement I will be grateful for. Im sorry this is such a long post.
