say what?

Well, it’s official. I have mild to moderate noise-induced hearing loss in both ears. I’m going to get custom ear plugs made. Note kids: wear earplugs doing anything with loud stuff. Concerts, mowing the lawn, sitting at the end of the runway at an airport, etc.

    huh? what? anyway, I know where you're coming from... I haven't been tested,but I'm pretty sure that I'm in the same boat as you, if not worse. It's serious business, folks. sorry to hear of your diagnosis, john, but hopefully you can nip this in the bud before it gets too serious

    Welcome to the hearing impaired club John.I'm struggling with this right now and my options are hearing aids for both ears.For me it's an heredity thing{make sure you look up your family tree}. I can't believe how expensive they are almost five thousand dollars for the digital ones. and health insurance doesn't cover any part. I struggle with the phone and I blast the tv but you can get special headsets which make a huge difference. Good luck

    How odd. Just this week, the hearing in my left ear started to go. (Courtesy of <a href="http://www.waldo.net/menieres/" rel="nofollow">Meniere's Disease</a>.) It's been years since I've been able to talk on the phone with my right year, because it quickly becomes painful, and all that I can hear is a roaring sound. Now that's happening in my left year, though not when I'm talking on the phone, but quasi-randomly, even in complete silence. Bummer.

    Bobo and the rest,

    Nothing but sympathy on this front. I can't even begin to imagine what this must be like for all of you. I'm fortunate and have experienced no loss as of yet, but these days I am far more careful. Best of luck to all of you, and hopefully things will work out as well as they can...
