Ha, after one failed attempt I got an ENT appointment in the post this morning. April 2018, 11 days short of the day it started.

two months pass...

so, 11 months after this kicked up a notch i got to see an audiologist (nhs sent me to a private hospital as they had no appointments until july (it was put back 3 months))

he said there was hearing loss at certain frequencies, but didn't seem to consider that the ringing was drowning out the tones, making them hard to spot, rather than not hearing them exactly. (the audio equiv of being dazzled by the sun, say). he generally didn't look too happy about the situation.

MRI booked as well, but i worry that all the metal in my teeth will rule that out.

i also realised that i've lost my earplugs. haven't used them this year. will buy some more but the ones i like are a penny below the amazon free postage limit.

(he also singled out Brixton Academy as a dangerously loud venue)

My brother, my sister and my mother all wear hearing aids now - how I've escaped God knows, it's murder on my throat having to shout all the time, let me tell you.
