Protect Your Ears

Imagine this scenario:

You come home after a long day of work and have a nice dinner. You relax for a bit, get some work done, watch a little TV.  You lay down… and there it is. Good luck trying to sleep.

How about this one:

You’re on vacation in the middle of nowhere, hiking through a forest, and finally you come upon a clearing with an absolutely breathtaking view. You sit down, catch your breath, get ready to relax… and there it is. Good luck enjoying the view.

One more for good measure:

You’re a musician who usually works at home. You get the chance to work in a really nice, professional recording studio. Incredible equipment, perfectly sound treated, the works. You walk in, ready to seize the opportunity… and there it is, without hesitation. Good luck getting anything done.

What is it? Tinnitus. A constant ringing in your ears that never fully goes away, only being masked throughout your day (if you’re lucky). The quieter the room, the worse the ringing. Put your ear up to a surface (such as a pillow), it gets worse. All of these are scenarios I’ve dealt with, and I have trouble sleeping pretty frequently because of the damage I’ve done to my ears. I’ve heard all the excuses for not wearing ear plugs – they’re uncomfortable, they distort the sound too much, “I don’t need them”, “it’s too late”, and they’re all bullshit. There are quality earplugs for every budget that are comfortable and don’t distort the sound. No one is immune to hearing loss, and it can always get worse.
