Daily Outfit: Depressed Hearing
January 29, 2013 § 5 Comments
I got nothing.
I have been staring at this blank post for most of the day and I still got nothing. Pathetic.
Oh wait! No, um, nevermind. Hmm.
I could talk about something that is depressing me lately though if your up for it. If not skip everything else, look at the outfit photos, and come back tomorrow when I post some reviews. Ok then, moving on.
I am having greater difficulty with my hearing. To the point that I am rather worried about it. I have had hearing loss since I was a kid so losing my hearing is nothing new, nor is it solely a part of aging. I was talking to my mother about it last night and she said my hearing loss was explained to her using graphs. Love medical issues that come with graphics…sigh. At any rate a normal human has a bell curve of hearing. Basically you start out with only hearing so many frequencies, gradually increase your range then decrease again over time. Very common. My bell curve is screwed up and I peaked early and decreased quickly. Combine that with my awesome eyesight (sarcasm is totally intentional) and I’m going to be blind and deaf in no time. Can you say depressing? We went to dinner last night and the waiter, a nice guy I’m sure, had a very soft foreign voice. The restaurant was loud to boot. Basically I didn’t understand a single word he said. The entire night. Thank god for my husband otherwise I never would have gotten any of it. Yup. Depressed and worried.
Though mostly it is a non-issue and I do okay. Especially if I tell people I have hearing loss. I just wish I could smile at someone and hand them a card that says “I’m not trying to be a PITA, and I’m not stupid or ignoring you, I just can’t hear you.”
