Thank you, I appreciate your counsel. Being blessed with tinnitus has not been the best gift…..yet I know I can shake it with your help.
Words like this are ever humbling. Being “gifted” this confidence and hope by a patient is so kind!
Knowing there is help for many can offer hope that each and every patient can achieve a positive outcome. For in this, definition of success, can be described in so many different ways. For some, it’s being able to read a book in a quiet place without the annoyance of the tinnitus. For others, it might be to get to sleep at night without a sound machine, fan, or tv being on nearby. Success, to me, is ever changing and is best defined as where the patient sees themselves after a course of the treatment, best designed for them. It may be digital hearing devices helping to improve the audibility of sound and speech and thus helping to reduce the awareness of the unwanted sounds; tinnitus. Reducing a patients sound intolerance or placing the tinnitus out of a persons everyday moments. It is our position and profession, when we place high priority to tinnitus, that we become engaged to help peoples lives….that is to live without the negative attention of unwanted tinnitus and ear ringing.
