"Hearing voices no one else can hear isn't a good sign, even in the wizarding world."
--Ron Weasly in "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
I'm not that far gone, yet, and I don't talk to snakes, but I know a few.
What's troubling is I have this buzzing in my ear(s). I can hear things like a refrigerator running better than I can hear my husband's voice at times.
Is it because of my tumor; the fact I had so many ear infections as a child, I almost lost hearing in my right ear; or, is it just because I play my ipod too loud?
When I get my MRI, it shows a lot of sinus congestion, so my oncologist thinks it's that.
I saw an ear, nose and throat doctor, who said that my hearing was only moderately poor, and anyway, there was nothing he could do.
So please don't be angry when I ask you to repeat yourself.
