I'm about 75% maybe more now. Damaged eardrums. An idiot shot a .38 off next to my left ear and a cherry bomb in a wammo slingshot got my right. Finishing touches were put on in a fight when the guy smacked both my ears with the palms of his hands. Johnnyt
Johnnyt you should write a book I am willing to bet you have absolutely fascinating stories to tell
i have trouble hearing what my wife tells me to do
she wants me to get a hearing aid
but i am afraid i will have more chores
so i keep the poor hearing
I was born that way. In public school, my grades were starting to slip.
They figured out that I was having a hard time trying to hear what the teacher was saying.
It wasn't bad enuff to get an aide so they always made sure that I sat at the front of the class.
I'm at the point now that I should consider a hearing test and one or 2 aides. I'm lucky in that my current job in the health care system will provide a good portion of the cost.
Before it was ok but getting much worse. If I go to a movie, I miss half the dialogue.
And I have to get people to repeat everything which can be frustrating at times.
When I watch a video, it has to be turned up loud and it drives my wife crazy, specially if she is in bed and trying to sleep.
2014 New Year Resolution. Get a hearing test.
