A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

SHAKE, RATTLE AND ROLL


I have this whistle ... in my car.

I'm not exactly sure what's causing it and with a 60 percent hearing loss and a constant ringing in my left ear, it's hard to tell where the whistling is coming from while I'm driving.

I've open and shut all of the windows and sunroof over and over, but it's still there.

Now, my car is only a year old. It would seem to me that it shouldn't be whistling. So, I asked my man to take a look.

He took it for a ride and it didn't whistle.

This morning the whistling was back, but I solved the problem.

I turned up the radio.

My guess is that your man can't hear high pitched sounds. It's true...some people can't hear them. As to your hearing loss, my man calls it selective hearing, but my doc calls it genetic with the name of Alport's Syndrome. Welcome to our family! To get rid of the whistling in the car, trade the car in for another one. Too bad you can't trade the ringing in the ear as easily. Maybe you could train the ringing to match the whistling and make a nice tune out of them. :)

Welcome to the world of tinnitus sufferers.

Medical science can tell you of a number of possible causes but no one has found a cure.
A professor at Columbia-Presbyterian in NYC told me, after much diagnostic testing, that it’s not an acoustic neuroma – so I should be happy. I’d just have to learn to live with it.

There is a National Tinnitus Assocation that I belonged to for several years. Their members share experiences and some limited medical research. This information was somewhat helpful to some of the members. But bottom line is I’ve learned to live with it.

Why is Bob Ingle such a fan of censorship? Why would someone that makes his living being oh-so-critical of others be afraid of a little criticism directed towards himself? Look at the other APP blogs to see what Bob Ingle is so afraid of.

I'm deaf in one ear and can't hear out of the other without my hearing aid. I feel clueless in any conversation, and won't leave home without it!!! Of course, my seesters may think I'm clueless anyway. ha!
