Tinnitus, the bane of my life. A few years ago I tripped walking to work and banged my forehead on the pavement. It was pretty gruesome and I’m very lucky to still be here. I impressed quite a few doctors in A&E with the lump on my head. Thankfully I didn’t break any bones.
Unfortunately it also left me with tinnitus, which at times can be overwhelming. Usually after being in a noisy environment or hearing a loud/high pitched sound it will be particularly bad, night-time being the worst as the quiet in the house makes it sound so much louder.
Some days it’s barely there and I enjoy these days but even at it’s worst I remember how lucky I am to still be here with nothing more serious than ringing, noisy ears.
