While listening to the audio book version of The Moral Landscape I happened to hear that Dr. Harris has tinnitus.
Then a “friend” invited me to a loud bar. One hour later and I had tinnitus too. It’s been quite bothersome - the very high pitched ringing which is not going away even after taking more vitamins and so on.
I’ve dropped the friend as it seems they are only interested in loud hearing destroying events.
Anyway I’ve worked on distracting myself more, and am taking melatonin at night. But as for what to do next I’m opening up to all treatments including those which may have a placebo effect (which can be real).
