Well now that I have a week off to try and get my ear back to what it was I thought it would be good to show some of my accomplishments to others over the last few years with hyperacusis.  My life will probably never be what it was, but I have still found ways to enjoy it.  And my advise for others is to set goals you can realistically accomplish and strive to reach those goals to help you get better.

Also I always felt that we needed something on here to show others that it can be done and not just tell them all the time to get trt help.  Although that is important, I always felt very down after visiting the site.  I am very glad it is here though.

So on with what I wanted to say I have been able to get myself back up to tolerating horse riding.  Somethings I have had to change around to accomidate this such as metal shoes are not tolerable so they got replaced with rubber boots, and I hate the sound of clanky metal so all my tack is "desounded" so that I can tolerate it whether that means switching parts out or wrapping them with quieter materials.

Great the pictures worked, didn't know if it would.  You can click on them to see the larger images.
and a few more.  And actually it is very sad and what led to some of my breakdown lately is the bay mare in the pics.  Her name was Bailey I had her since she was a baby and she was a horse that did more for me than anyone will ever understand, she was also trained extremely well at many different things.  Many of which were to help me out with riding her such as not vocalizing to other horses and many others. 
But she passed on this spring at the young age of 10 due to cancerous tumors in her stomach.
