I had my outgoing Army physical prove in the room with the beeps that I lost a significant amount of hearing in the range of a normal female voice that I have trouble hearing women, I have this signed by the doctor to prove to my wife!
That’s what I need!
Unfortunately, the hearing tests all show that I hear the tones. Strangely though, while I hear the sounds coming in, my head does not put them together in the same way they were said. Is there such a thing as “auditory dyslexia”? It irritates my wife that she has to say the same thing three times before I finally hear it the way she said it. It’s not that I didn’t know she was talking, it’s that I heard something completely wacky and weird – when I confirm, “Did you really just say ‘the twinkie filling flies through the air’?” she’ll get exasperated and say “no dammit, I said the ‘air is full of twinkling fireflies.’” This has been going on for years … and not as a joke.
