Re: Jen Cap - Arizona Walk to silence Tinnitus

The bit at the end is a bit awkward, it's like the reporter is almost afraid to ask her a personal question, given what we know.

Re: Jen Cap - Arizona Walk to silence Tinnitus

Tinnitus is hell. Speaking personally if I could alter just one thing in my life I would get rid of that horrible high pitched noise in my head.

Good for Jennifer and her mom trying to do something about this. Finding a cure would bring a lot of happiness to a lot of people. I know that.

Re: Jen Cap - Arizona Walk to silence Tinnitus

It's good to see Jennifer again. As a sufferer of tinnitus, I'm glad she's out there bringing publicity to this issue. It's freaking horrible. But you learn to live with it.

So, thanks, Jennifer. Walk on.

be nice.

Re: Jen Cap - Arizona Walk to silence Tinnitus

Nice to see Jen, she is looking great!

I wish the reporter would have asked her about her shoulder.
I wonder if she will ever be able to play WTT, or other exhos.
As a Hingis fan I feel pretty fortunate that she still plays an exho 'season', it's great to see her on court even if it is just for a few months...plus Davenport & Anna K.

I hope Jen can play again.

Unfortunetly with the sirious nature of her injury it has really stoped her tennis playing career completely. she does not even hit and has not picked up a raquest in several years...its a tragedy its like when Julie Andrews whent in for routine surgery and left never being able to sing again...

i hope she sued the doctors...its really a disgrace!

I know.. It was pretty hard for me as well in the beginning but it really helped to try to block it.. First I listened to music for a long time.. Now I dont notice it much over the years unless its dead quiet.. Ohh I also sleep with a fan on.. Helps to block out noises.. Its so hard though..

Tinnitus doesn't kill you, but it certainly can drive you crazy... I've had to endure that damn noise 24/7 in my right ear for several years... sounds like a kettle boiling in my head. A bit like this:

I'm not trying to trivialise it at all. My impression was that it's quite horrible but I didn't want to say that lest I offend anyone or make them feel worse or whatever.

I just want to commend you for surviving with it, that's all. I know how hard it can be to live with a condition like that on a daily basis.

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

I doesn't make me stronger. All it does is erode the quality of my life.

Jen looks great. Sorry she suffers from tinnitus, that'll drive any sane person crazy. Dr. Weil has some good advice about it-
