Hi,
Sorry to hear of your situation, it sounds terrible,
Water wise I think its around a week, and food its around 3 weeks, but I feel it will be a painful way to go! Hysteria with hallucinations,
If you can wait until winter which is my plan, you could take some sedatives mixed with a small amount of booze and sleep partially clothed in the cold and maybe snowy weather, by the time the Hypothermia kicks in you won't be aware.

What country are you in if you don't mind me asking.

It takes 2 - 4 weeks to die of starvation. You shouldn't have any liquids or food otherwise it will just cramp you up, and make it worse. Also you should be left alone otherwise family will call 911 and rescue you. If possible you should get end of life palliative care. Such things include keeping your mouth and lips moist. But really this can be a very painful way to exit life. But if it's your only option then you might want to go for it.

i need help
I'm going to speak my mind about your situation here:
I have seen your posts before, and they always seem like you are on the extreme ends of desperation to end your suffering.. I have tinnitus as well and it is the primary reason (although not the sole reason) I will be sealing my own fate with in the next few weeks or months..

I know you are old and tinnitus is constantly distracting you from being able to focus on things very well, and your frantic posts make me question whether you have enough mental fortitude left to do some research on here of the various different methods there are to help end your suffering..
Tinnitus is the worst thing that has happened in my life, and so I can imagine what you might be going through, and I want to help you so that you are not suffering any longer..

I admit that it takes a bit of research to figure out all of the available methods and how to properly execute them, but I'm worried that you might not be able to muster the patience or focus needed to thoroughly research the different methods.. And I'm not sure how computer-savvy you are at your age either..

One of my favorite methods is the hydrogen sulfide method (also known as h2s), because you only need to get 2 different ingredients from some stores and mix them together and you're done (in both senses)..
But there are other methods you could do research on as well, like the grilling method (I think it is called CO), the N method, the NS method, the F method, et cetera..

However, if worse comes to worse, and the severity of your tinnitus won't let you do proper research or allow you much patience, I suppose you could do the jumping method.. Starving your self probably won't work because your body will force enough survival instinct on you that you will end up eating and drinking, and it would be a painful way to go any way even if you could suppress survival instinct..

Jumping is scary as heck, but it is a method that is easy to prepare.. All you need is to find a place that is sufficiently high, and be able to suppress your survival instinct long enough to take a leap.. Again, make sure you don't choose a place that isn't very high; You don't want to risk still being alive afterwards, because the consequences of that might leave you in a state much worse than you are currently.. You don't want to have tinnitus AND be left crippled in a wheelchair for the rest of your life, unable to end your pain..

You can search around on google maps for a jumping place if you can't think of any good places in your area already.. And even if you have to drive quite a distance to find a good place, it'll be some thing you'll only need to do once..

I hope that you can soon manage to find release from your endless torture that you are experiencing.. You have lived long enough to deserve freedom from your pain.. You deserve peace, happiness, and tranquillity..

Love and light:heart:

Hi Susan. Stop eating and drinking is rly bad method. It takes a long time and becomes a painful process. If you think about tinnitus, you're definitely gonna have to end this process. I don't know much about your illness. If there really isn't a cure, then it's best to choose the appropriate method within the forum. I hope you get better.

Your t may be much worse than mine was a number of years ago when it did indeed cause me to be suicidal. It started abruptyly one night. I had been perfectly healthy. But I beat it. First of all the drug lorazepam let me re!ax and sleep. I had been unable to sleep at a!l. Then i put the hissing noise to work for me. I pretended that i was on a long spaceship voyage and the hissing was the sound of the engines and the ether of the universe raci g by the thin skin of the ship. Soon i stopped hearing it. My brain became accustomed to the sound and it didnt even register.

I am so sorry to hear about your suffering sister. It sounds like you are in so much pain. I know you are in a dark place but what you are describing is going to be excruciatingly painful as well as hard to resist the SI.
I really hope you can find some peace, where ever that may be and that you feel no more pain.
Good luck sister.

I understand how you could ignore it I too have high pitch hissing for many years and can just ignore it never even classed it as tinnitus just didn't and doesn't bother me but how do you live any kind of life with jet plane roaring hammering drilling both ears and hyperacusis you cant stand your own voice or sound of your own eating the anxiety of it is crippling me so very ill its dementing never any quiet peace calm cant do anything cant function I really do want to go now its how I don't even know if I have the strength left I keep thinking it will stop surely reduce let me live but I am worsening by the day its literally driving me insane noise like this you cant get away from never thought I could be in the terrible state that I want to die I just know its not going to stop or let up x

Dear Susan - The drug that saved my life when i had tinnitus (I'm here now for other reasons) was, as i mentioned, lorazepam. I see that it has a better review rating than your drug mirtazapine. See link below. Why don't you try it? Does white noise help you? Is your t. too loud to do the spaceship trick i invented? There are forums for tinnitus sufferers too.

I don't like to talk about t. because, like just now, i become conscious that i still have the hissing - but unless i start specifically thinking about it i never notice it at all anymore. My brain totally filters it out!


I feel so bad for you, Susan. When my t started i was unable to sleep at all. At all! The lorazepam saved my life. The doctors i was going to never offered it to me. They didn't even care. One sent me to a sleep testing place. All they were really doing there was hustling expensive sleep apnea gadgets. What saved me was one day i went to the regular doctor and he wasn't there that day and the substitute doctor offered it to me. I'd never even heard about it before. It let me sleep and then i beat the damned thing. Like you i had been perfect!y healthy. I was on a camping trip. The mosquitoes were very bad. I kept smacking my ear where they were buzzing me. I noticed that my ear made an odd ringing noise when i slapped it. The import of that registered later. Then i awoke in the middle of the night to a loud hissing noise like steam escaping. I thought a snake had gotten in my tent. That's how it started.

I am so sympathetic with people who have that awful problem, and i know it comes in different degrees from nightmarish to beyond nightmarish. I would like you to be able to beat it if possible.

@Susan Caswell , have you seen an ear, nose, throat (ENT) specialist? I don't think they would have a cure but they might be able to help you diagnose the source of the problem.

I think T is sometimes caused by blockages in the ear canal from ear wax buildup, blockages in the vessels (circulatory system) near the ear or generalized inflammation in the ear. Some cancer meds, food additives, artificial sweeteners, diuretics and quinine can cause it. If you are able to go to an ENT specialist I would book an appt and in the meantime maybe try to take something that would reduce inflammation such as turmeric extract (circumin) and just observe what happens.

Are you dehydrated? I get mild tinnitus when I am dehydrated. CTB by starvation is not a good idea but water fasting or intermittent fasting might help. Just make sure you are drinking purified water.

Have you gotten a MRI of your brain. Also why cant you shower?
I think she was saying that she is too weak to stand or walk because she can't stand to hear herself chew and from the severe anxiety.

I remember watching a video that a woman survived 50+ days in the winter on her own by eating snow. Apparently having liquids decreases the rate of which your body shuts down. I cant remember the scientific term for it but it seems to be true so you best not to eat and drink. Could take a week to die from it

We're you on psychiatric medication when this started. They seem to be a main cause.

Hi, I have an eating disorder and am studying to become a dietitian. The length of lying from starvation depends on the amount of fat you have on your body. I’ve gone 10 days without food, and believe me, I was nowhere near death lol. Water, on the other hand, is much, much quicker and more reliable; that’s certainly a matter of days. The only thing is, either takes an incredible amount of willpower..and it would be quite obvious to the outsider that you were starving yourself before you actually get thin enough for death.

Your body dying from starvation and dehydration are two different mechanisms. For most people, it would take months to die from lack of food. And for most people, it would take days to die from lack of water.

And remember, most food contains water.

Thank you do you have it but can stand it I think it has to do with severity pitch if you can go out no hyperacusis
