From time to time, it’s helpful to look to others for inspiration when we’re having difficulty coping with our tinnitus. Throughout history, many individuals have been afflicted with this condition, and although it poses severe challenges in going about daily life, they can be overcome. You’ll note that many of these celebrities with tinnitus are musicians – which is unsurprising, given that noise induced hearing loss is one of the leading causes of tinnitus. To be fair, many of these individuals were already successful by the time that they acquired tinnitus, but the take home message is that they didn’t allow it to impede their success in life.
