Finally, I've been to the ENT doctor to check my hearing ability!
I have broken eardrum in my right ear innately with almost no hearing. Recently I've noticed that my hearing ability is getting really worse. My hubby told me that he gets even hungry talking to me louder voice than before, how mean of him(*_*)
and also said my voice got louder.
About less than 10 years ago, I bought an analog hearing-aid at glasses store when I bought a glasses. And I have been using it when necessary. However, it's not comfortable wearing it long time as it catches the unnecessary dissonant sound.
The result was that because of aging phenomenon, my left side ear also has less ability catching specifically high-pitched tone. God, I'm just in my mid 50's......
Whew, aging phenomenon !!!
Accompanied with my hubby and sitting in front of the doctor (he is my private driver, I've got no licence. haha), I explained him that I can hear the sound but not as Japanese (language). Can you guess what the doctor said?
"Oh, many of my patients told me it sounds as if people were talking in English."
And then, I turned to my hubby seeing he was a bit giggling,
I thought, "if it is really in English, I might be able to understand a little,"
For older Japanese people, English can be the "Greek" for you Westerners.
Anyways, according to the doctor's opinion; there won't be urgent need, However, I might be able to get implant surgery; buying expensive digital aid, I can even wear both ears..... These are the options depend on me. I hate to buy costly new ones; which might not work well.
Oh well, I will have to wait and bear the present condition patiently.
I found this picture of decorated hearing aid in the PC, not so practical...
But wishing to add the bright side to the dismal topic.
Thank you for stopping by, it took me a while to write this post. I'll catch up commenting on your posts, Orchid*
