It's close to 3 months since the hearing in my left ear went AWOL, followed about 3 weeks ago by the right.
For the first few days I ranted and howled and felt generally miserable.
But I can't keep that up for long.
As usual, after the self-pity faded, I retreated into a semi-dreamlike state and chilled out inside my head.
I carried on doing things even when I couldn't properly participate.
I just stopped caring so much about it.
Today, for example, I accompanied First Born to a Gifted and Talented conference.
On the bus on the way home - EUREKA!
'Speak to me!' I said to FB with my eyes tightly closed.
Yes. It was true.
My left ear had cleared!
So I'm back in the world of the privileged hearing.
Thanks for waiting.
