Hearing

Got my hearing tested yesterday by an audiologist from OHSU. She found that my hearing is mostly okay, but my right ear can't hear as well on the higher frequency ranges tested for. What this means is that the part of the range of human speech in which certain letters like the letter S are in don't get heard as well, especially in a noisy room. She guessed correctly that this means I only hear parts of words sometimes, or miss entire words in sentences on occasion. This was basically spot-on, I *do* have gaps in conversations at times where I don't hear enough to puzzle out what's been said. I thought as much, but I'm glad it's confirmed. And I'm glad it's not as bad as I had feared. No need for a hearing aid yet, but she still recommended I get my hearing tested there every year. Already made an appointment for next year.
