Hi everyone, i'm new to the message board. I was wondering if anyone here is from Toronto, Ontario, Canada or maybe nearby?. 

I've had hyperacusis now for a bit over a year, i'm finally starting hearing aid / sound generator therapy for it soon, i hope it works. 

I'm terribly lonely with this condition, and need friends who can relate and help with support. 

Thanks!.

Hey David, I'm not from Canada, but I'm sure everyone can feel your pain that you are going through. We all are. It's something we can't get away from because we will always be attached to it, and for some, it may leave them giving them a chance to have a normal life again. It is great that you are using treatment to work something out for yourself. Also, you don't have to feel terribly lonely with this condition. When I first made a post about what I was going through, I mentioned that I prayed to God as much as I could before I went to bed, thanking him for what he has done for me on my day, and continuing to pray that he will do everything in his power to protect us and lend us his strength so we can continue to go through our day without having to worry. Also, don't be afraid to comment on other people's post. They can also give you support if they don't see your post.

Keep doing what you're doing. You are nearly there to being healed 😀 👍

Yes, Toronto is a large city, with lots of noise in places, but there are a lot of trees that muffle a bit and some quiet parks here that assist. You are correct--hyperacusis is an isolating disability and our society is now very noise focussed--beeping equipment, sirens, etc.

Hi Toronto, I'm from Kitchener, not far from Toronto. I wish you well in your struggles to overcome or live with this condition.
I've tried many things but just now use earplugs a lot, or avoid noise as much as possible. Am surviving and I expect you will too. Good luck with whatever works for you.
Are you of working age ? I know that makes it harder to avoid noise........ Donna

Hi David, I just moved out of Toronto to the Georgian Bay area. Yes, it can be lonely, I find some of the Hyperacusis research groups on Facebook help with that. Focus on what you can do and learn new hobbies if you think that will help. Keep up the hope!

Hi Donna,

It was a combination of things. Since I could no longer work and most of our family and friends had moved out of Toronto, my husband and I had little reason to stay. The quiet was a factor, but not a main one.
