Complete hearing loss
I’ve been struggling the past few weeks with hearing loss since I got sick. My eardrum broke and I figured since I was on swim team, this happens periodically and will get better….but it hasn’t. So I have to go to the doctor today. You have no idea what it is like to be in a room with someone talking to me and have no idea what is being said. It is so isolating and frustrating.
My boyfriend is really scared now, so he is making me go.
I’m desperate now ….. I can’t believe this is happening to me. So strange. I’m learning a lot of things from the experience. I thought my grandfather may have been suffering from Alzheimer, but he has massive hearing loss to, and sometimes he tells me he can’t comprehend what I am saying. I can’t comprehend what people are saying if I have spent all day in effort trying to listen. It’s not Alzheimer – it is exhaustion.
