    I haven't listened to this yet so don't know how relevant it is to ME.

    Hearing me

    The Documentary

    (This programme contains audio effects that may cause discomfort to people living with hearing conditions. There is a modified version of this programme, with quieter effects, on this page https://bbc.in/2TrInga)

    What does life sound like for someone whose hearing has suddenly changed? Carly Sygrove is a British teacher living in Madrid. She was sitting in her school’s auditorium when suddenly her head was filled with a loud screeching sound.

    Diagnosed as sudden sensorineural hearing loss, Carly no longer has any functional hearing in her left ear, and battles with the whoops, squeals and ringing that comes from having tinnitus. This dramatically changed her work and personal life, as well as her ability to communicate in a country thousands of kilometres from where she was born.

    It made Carly realise how fragile our bodies are - and how wonderful sounds can be.

    In this intimate programme for the BBC World Service, Carly shares her personal story and speaks honestly about how life with hearing in only one ear is far from quiet.

    For me, tinnitus came as one of my first symptoms when I first became unwell in April 2012 (probably not M.E. back then). I have not had one second of silence since, and although you do learn to cope it is a bloody nightmare.
