Hi I’m Ross I’m a gardener and about 6 weeks ago I developed tinnitus using loud machines at work along with loud music at work and weekends.
I’m not going to lie this is the toughest test I’ve personally faced in my 39 years of life. I’m averaging 4 hours sleep a night and I’m someone who loves sleep and peace and quiet, it’s very stressful and draining.
In my first fortnight, I contacted the BTA and spoke to Shakeela who gave me a massive help by listening to my story and sharing her knowledge and advice. She was fantastic!
Although I’m only 6 weeks in and at times feel like giving up, the advice and information I’ve gathered from BTA has been priceless and it’s nice knowing I’m not alone. (Thank you to Jessica as well)
I have spent my time researching this affliction, therapies and treatments but it’s so complicated and different for every sufferer it’s a lot to take in. Hopefully we can share experiences together; I’m trying different things and hope to report my findings here.
Love and healing to all
