have you heard the old saying? If you think it's too loud then you're too old? Yeah, that used to be me. Music has always been a huge part of my life, I started a garage band back in high school and I toured the world now, but I never been particularly careful about volume control or taking precautions to protect my ears. Early in my career, I noticed a buzzing which I know now is called tinnitus. That would start in my left ear after playing gigs. I often ignored it. But as the years went on, the buzzing worsened and eventually I lost all hearing in that ear. I'm also no longer able to determine where sounds are coming from. After seeing my doctor, I learned that I have a type of hearing loss called single sided deafness, although I have no trouble hearing others in a one on one situations I really struggle hearing and communicating well in noisy places like parties and meetings. Recently I've started wearing a cochlear implant, which has really helped. Although loud music caused irreversible damage to my left ear. I'm doing everything I can to preserve the hearing I have left. Have you heard the old saying, if you think it's too loud then you're too old. Yeah, that used to be me.
