Well, that was interesting

Just got back from the audiologist. We did a full hearing test, which I hadn't had done in about five years. My left ear is the same as always, but my right has dropped off the scale above 2000 hZ - to the point that I heard the beeps intended for my right ear in my left first, and Andrei was trying not to wince at the ear-splitting shriek that was coming out of my headphones while I'm sitting there calmly not hearing a darn thing.

The right has always a little worse than the left, but not by this much - and short of ear infections, this is the first significant change in my hearing since the first time I was tested (at age 4). I'm not sure what would have caused the drop, but I don't really see any reason to worry that my hearing's gone degenerative. (*crosses fingers*)

Anyway, we've ordered new hearing aids for me, Siemens Trianos (pretty much the top of the line). By the 26th (and possibly sooner) I should be hearing better, and without that damned constant feedback that drives you all so crazy ;)

The important thing is that you can hear! Not if others hear a quit ringing!

Your experience of life is primary..anyone who is complaining whould shut up as soon as they couldn't hear the sound of their own voice!!!
