Hearing issues...

I think something is going on with my hearing. I have a drs appointment on Tuesday morning.

At work I'm finding that although I'm sat at desk on my own.
After a while I'm struggling with my hearing.
I don't know if it's because I'm sat there for so long in silence, or because whenever people walk past they're in a hurry and have a tendency to walk n talk.
But people can say something to me and I'm sort of missing words or something.

It's embarrassimg really since I'm kind of coming across a little weird as a consequence.
Sometimes I do ask others to repeat what they say so I can answer them but there are times when I'm sort of like "whatever" if you're in such a hurry, why bother talking? "
Why should it embarrass you that your work place is not very deaf aware???

That's their problem, not yours - besides that, having people make sure that they stop and have your full attention before speaking is a "reasonable adjustment" that you should be entitled to request to enable you to better do your job.

Get well soon ☺️
The doctor will check you ears by otoscope for external and middle ear and then test your inner ear and nervous connections to find a clue what is wrong . Hopefully you will recover soon 🙂

Hope you visited an ENT Specialist and got it checked. Please do not ignore this. Ear-drums are quite sensitive. Get well soon...🙏
