Hearing Loss

Once I straighten out this insurance crap, I will finally be able to see an audiologist for the first time since I enlisted in the Army (Army band) over five years ago. I will be fitted for specialized ear plugs for musicians and have my hearing checked, as I have lost a bit more in the last five years.

The scariest part of the visit is that I will be undergoing a series of tests to check for Ménière’s Disease, which can leave me completely deaf and to which there is no known cure. According to my doctor at the University, these weird episodes (where I suddenly faint or almost faint due to dizziness and loss of balance) I’ve been having are actually vertigo which - along with my growing issues with tinnitus, episodes of sudden hearing loss, and ear pain - is a telling symptom of Ménière’s. I have already experienced hearing loss due to a childhood illness (rare strain of mumps that my vaccines didn’t prepare for), as well as from constant noise exposure (as an active classically trained musician).

I began taking ASL when my hearing problems became worse this last year, and I have also been studying vibrations in relation to pitch and pitch tendencies for the last three years, so I’m not worried about losing my hearing. I’m just worried about what it will do to my career as a music educator (who wants their child’s music teacher to be Deaf?).

I’m also scared. I’ve worked so hard for my dream, and to lose the ability to hear what I love is devastating.

Let’s hope for the best! Maybe it’s just some neurological stuff or something.

Has anyone else realized how much money it costs just to GET a job?

Gas money for interviews for POTENTIAL jobs.

Ink and paper for applications and resumes.

Fingerprinting once job is obtained.

Uniform/appropriate work attire

Supplies (I am a working/starving musician - nobody buys my supplies)

Apartment to send paychecks to

Utilities (or you lose the apartment)

Car and car insurance. Or bike. Or public transit. It costs money, okay?

Internet/phone (to find jobs and receive call backs).

Food so you don’t die while working/looking for work.

WORKING IS EXPENSIVE!!!!!! :(


Nothing better than spending time with family and musical tomatoes. It’s Audrey’s first 4th of July and she loved the parade (but was prefers live bands to canned music). Also, the tomato ensemble was pretty good.

If Satan wants to destroy my uterus each month, I know Jesus wants me to have birth control.
