Can you hear me, Now?

My hearing appointment was yesterday. They did some tests to see if I had an inner ear problem. They tried to make me dizzy in multiple ways, but none of it worked. The doctor thinks that's a separate issue and that I'm just getting dizzy when I stand up because of poor blood circulation.

He also says that I have hearing loss in my right ear, but not really significant in my left ear. So they're ordering a hearing aid for my right ear only. That should arrive in the next week or two. I'm just glad to know that there really is a problem, I'm not just imagining it or not paying attention well enough. I was wondering how it was possible that sometimes I could hear people and sometimes I couldn't. I'm guessing now that it just depends on whether they were talking on my left or right side.

You were always able to read lips in HS to get out of not hearing people, have you lost your touch?

Glad to hear everything is okay anyhow.

Nah, you see, the hearing loss in my right ear is because of some guy I know who used to sit on my right in band and blast his tuba. Can't seem to remember his
