Grace’s story

I have had tinnitus for as long as I can remember.  So I am quite fortunate that I haven’t had to struggle with trying to navigate a new thing.  I always thought that ringing in people’s ears was normal, which means that I do have a bit of an obsession with silence because I have never experienced silence before, so I will quite often ask people to explain what silence is, which is quite difficult if you can all imagine.  So how I cope with it on a daily basis, especially being a musician, I’m surrounded by noise all the time, and on bad days it fills your head so I use music as a focus point because it’s a lot better than just the high pitch ringing in your ears.
