Dave Carr, BTA
Dave Carr, BTA Volunteering and Engagement Manager comments: “Being among people who have the problem, listening to their experiences and how they have managed to handle things, is a tremendous help for the individual. I witness this first hand when attending group meetings. It is amazing seeing the difference it makes to people, especially those who have recently been diagnosed.”
What is Tinnitus?
Tinnitus is defined as the experience of sounds with no external source, most commonly ringing or buzzing, but sometimes experienced as a whooshing, clicking or even music. Many people aren’t troubled by sounds they hear. However, for around 10%, the condition has a significant impact on their quality of life which is often linked to stress, anxiety or sometimes depression.
Dave adds: “Tinnitus can be an isolating condition, with friends and family struggling to understand how it feels to adapt to the presence of loud or persistent noises. Some people choose to bring a partner or family member to the meetings, which can often help both parties understand more about the condition and the experiences or behaviours it can bring.”
Alan Hopkirk
Alan Hopkirk comments,
“The BTA Glasgow Tinnitus Support Group is a sound source of information regarding Tinnitus which is why we are proud to be corporate sponsors, however, there is a lot of misinformation out there which can be very damaging to someone experiencing tinnitus. I hope that by working together and offering support and information we can make a positive difference to people struggling with tinnitus in our local community and bolster our own tinnitus therapy services.”
