Why the hell do you have TWO (or even one) hearing aids?
Can you hear people's hearts beating with them? That would be so cool!

Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

I want to know why a guy in his 30's can't hear out of both ears. I don't recall any reason for this.
Well, congrats on joining the land of the hearing. It's gotta be weird...

There are many ways you can have hearing damage at a young age.Originally Posted by mrelwooddowd
http://hcd2.bupa.co.uk/fact_sheets/M...ring_Loss.htmlConductive hearing loss is caused by anything that interferes with the transmission of sound from the outer to the inner ear.
Possible causes include:
middle ear infections (otitis media)
collection of fluid in the middle ear ("glue ear" in children)
blockage of the outer ear (by wax)
damage to the eardrum by infection or an injury
otosclerosis, a condition in which the ossicles of the middle ear become immobile because of growth of the surrounding bone
rarely, rheumatoid arthritis affects the joints between the ossicles.
Sensorineural hearing loss is due to damage to the pathway for sound impulses from the hair cells of the inner ear to the auditory nerve and the brain.
Possible causes include:
age-related hearing loss - the decline in hearing that many people experience as they get older
acoustic trauma (injury caused by loud noise) to the hair cells
viral infections of the inner ear (may be caused by viruses such as mumps or measles)
Ménière's disease (abnormal pressure in the inner ear)
certain drugs, such as aspirin, quinine and some antibiotics, which can affect the hair cells
acoustic neuroma, a benign (non-cancerous) tumour affecting the auditory nerve
viral infections of the auditory nerve (such as mumps and rubella)
infections or inflammation of the brain or brain covering - eg meningitis
a brain tumour

Lots of people have hearing loss, young and old. There are many causes, as seK outlined.
brian: What kind of hearing aids did you get? Just wondering (my wife is an audiologist).
BTW, CONGRATS! I'm sure it's cool when you are able to experience a whole new aspect of the world that you couldn't before.

I was wondering why Brian Curran specifically had hearing aids. He's been around here long enough that I pretty much know what's gone on with him for the last couple years. Hearing problems wasn't something I recalled as being an issue for him, and wondered if he'd stood to close to a grenade recently, etc.
Anyway..good luck with it Brian. I'm sure some of it is just getting used to what you've been missing for so long.
guido: thanks bro...i got the behind the ear style. it is almost like wearing a cell phone headset.
Pat: lol nope no standing to close to a grenade lol just progression of an old problem. And yeah it is basicly retraining my brain to filter out stuff again i hear EVERYTHING. it is cool
Seriously, congrats Brian. Glad you're happy with them. I think it's great.
I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.
