Gone Deaf Overnight

I’ve got some nasty stuff going on inside my head, tonsils, sinuses, all the tubes are messed up. A few days ago I even went deaf in my left ear overnight. That wasn’t fun.

I was sleeping on my right, and must have moved a little, and then I could hear some drunk kids on the bench outside making lots of noise, and then the lady in the flat opposite shouting at them for making such a noise at 2:30 in the morning. I could only hear this in my right ear, in my left nothing.

I got aback to sleep, and when I woke in the morning it was still the same, although sound came back after around half an hour or so. I don’t know if this is because of all the stuff in my head, or maybe related to the rather loud Happy Mondays gig I went to  the previous weekend. But delayed-action deafness? Seems unlikely. Using some audio software and headphones, I have deduced that I’ve lost a lot of the high-frequencies in the left ear, pretty much everything over 12kHz. I’m not happy about that, at all.

I’m not going to any more gigs, at least not without ear plugs.
