I think I'm going deaf, or partially deaf.....:(
I've begun to notice recently that I'm beginning to have trouble hearing-wise- I can't hear the TV unless I turn the volume up (and then other people complain it's too loud), I have to listen to music full-blast to hear the lyrics properly, and listening to conversations is a NIGHTMARE- I have to lipread people often, and if I misread what they're saying, it can cause problems.
In terms of music I always try to be careful, wearing earplugs and only playing for short periods. At gigs I try to muffle the kits if possible and we only do 40 minutes songs at a time.
I've been cleared by doctors but this is starting to screw my life right up, to the point where I was almost hit by a car crossing the road.
