How to accept tinnitus and hearing loss, as a musician ?

Hi guys, I have since more than a year hearing loss, mostly in the high frequencies, and tinnitus in both ears, with light hyperacusis.

I am not deaf, I don't need yet, I am even far to need hearing aids, but I still have lot a lot of frequencies on the top end.

I have tinnitus, it is not that loud, but it is here, present, permanent.

I know that I should not worrying, that there is solutions in music.

For example, in my case, I have been producing Pop music, and I decided to stop music production, and to focus on composing and songwriting.

I would hire a professional producer then to make full tracks from my compositions.

So, I should really be okay, I mean, you don't need to have a good hearing for composing music and for songwriting, but...

I can't be okay with my conditions, I mean, there is so much people, so much musicians with tinnitus and hearing loss, and they are going okay, but me, I am most of the day very stressed about it, and I fail eatch time I want to move forward.

So...Is there any tips, any experience you could share to help me go back in life again ?

Thanks !

Not a bass player, but a drummer. I have hearing loss and T. Ironically, it's not from the drums.
I keep playing, but I am very cautious about the volume I use (I have an e-kit). Playing is possibly the only activity that gets my mind off T.
