I was born deaf in my left ear, but it wasn't discovered until I was about
4ish, because I spoke very clearly (still do)I went to visit out of state
relatives and they kept putting the phone up to my ear to say something, and I kept
telling the adults "I can't hear out of that side". When I got back to
California, they took me to a specialist, and established that a nerve in my ear
didn't form correctly. That was the last time a doctor has given me his opinion
and that was 1970ish.
It hasn't been until the past 7 or 8 years, that my other ear has shown signs
of wear. Because that is my only *side* left, it can suck. Don't even try
and talk to me in a bar or loud place. All my friends and family know if they
want to be heard, they'd better sit on my *good* side.
Of course, it mostly works to my advantage. I hear what I want to hear, and
don't hear what I don't want to hear.
The only problem that I honestly can't figure out is earphones. I need all
speakers or tracks to come in on one side or I'm SOL.
If I want to hear my grandchildren, I will probably need some sort of
operation or hearing aid. I am surprised Pete doesn't rely more on hearing aids.
Maybe that is why people think Pete (and me) can be flighty. We just didn't
hear your fucking question right!!!
