medical stuff

I went to the doctor today for a follow-up visit to discuss starting Singulair for my asthma. I also brought the issue of constant allergic symptoms, fatigue, and my parents noticing that I'm not hearing very well. I always had very good hearing, never missed a sound on the hearing screenings.

I did get to start the Singulair and also have something for congestion. (I think this makes nine meds now.) They did a hearing screening, washed a tiny piece of wax out of my right ear, and did the screening again. In the left ear, I heard four out of five tones, one of which was a major strain. In the right ear, I heard two or three, and this was after the wax thing. Tomorrow I'll be having something called an audiogram done. I have no idea what this is so am dragging Mom with me. She's not really happy about taking off work early, but she's the one who kept bugging me.

Truth be told, I've been worried about it for a while. When I was 16, I purchased my first recording equipment of the professional variety because I wanted to record the songs I was writing. In the last couple of years, I've noticed that my ability to judge balance between the various aspects of the recording is affected, and I am finding it difficult to sing in tune. This really upsets me because music is one of those things that means a great deal to me. To be truthful, it is an extremely spiritual thing for me. Having my ability to sing and do the recordings impaired is like losing a finger or two.

    Just testing another ap. I think I don't like it, but it does update both blogger and Lj and seems less clunky than the other LJ app. So far the best…

    I am testing the IPhone app to see how accessible it is. Supposedly you can do a cut but I think I have to get skilled at selecting a lot of text.…
