A Main Character With Tinnitus?
The new, critically acclaimed, box office title “Baby Driver” features a protagonist who has been dealing with tinnitus from a young age. ‘Baby’ was involved in a car crash at a young age, and exposure to the sudden, very loud noise left him with a life-long ringing in his ears.
Baby deals with his tinnitus by ‘drowning out’ the sound with music through his earphones; which he wears almost all of the time.
This film is expected to shed some much-needed awareness of the struggles and suffering that people with tinnitus experience, as this film hits mainstream cinemas.
For those of you who may be unaware, tinnitus is a condition where your cochlea (the hearing organ) begins to pick up the body’s internal sounds. This can be experienced as ‘buzzing’, ‘ringing’ or ‘hissing’. Tinnitus affects a very large number of people, most of whom will only ever experience it in a mild form. However, tinnitus can prove extremely frustrating and troublesome, and can disrupt sleep and overall quality of life.
