    Hearing Loss & Dementia

    My friend who has perfect pitch put his guitar up against his son in the womb and played music while his wife read to him. Joshua came out and was good at math and English all through school. When Jeff's mom got dementia late in life, he would have her put her hand on his guitar while he played...

    Hearing Loss & Dementia

    Being that I am SSD from my "encounter" with a 5 ton load of granite slabs which left me totally imbalanced and tinnitus, I developed a change in my "gate" or walking straight ability, which over time threw my back out of alignment. I developed spinal stenosis to the point of having to have an...

    Have you checked for a malleus bone fracture? Wireless Bone Conduction headphones are great, and a Woojer Strap works really well too. 40 hz is soothing for tinnitus.

    Does body heat affect hearing aids, such as sweat?

    I went SSD in the instant that a load of granite slabs fell off a truck and struck me down. When I woke up in the hospital, the doctors realized that my right ear was completely dead (possible fractured bones in the inner ear), and my only good ear, (which I had some hearing loss in due to...

    Isolated and Angry

    My friend did this when she went deaf, I told her to go down to the shelter. She went down to the shelter with her favorite book, sat down, and started reading to the dogs. Certain dogs would sit and listen to her, instead of barking or pacing, and after awhile she picked one and it became a...

At night I put my bone conduction headphones over the ear plug and put on some A 432 instrumental music on low, and it lulls me to sleep. I also use a 432 tuning fork placed on my forehead, and listen to...

    Looking for Single Sided Deaf (SSD) people to chat with about sound localization

    In the "Hunting" world, you use all your senses to track your prey, but the sense of smell and the hearing are most important. With no sense of smell, and SSD, (maybe connected to inner ear being destroyed), I feel like bait when I'm out and about in public, but I have adjusted to this new...

    Looking for Single Sided Deaf (SSD) people to chat with about sound localization

    I did not become SSD over time, I was in a real bad accident, where I got a sever TBI, and when I woke up in the hospital I had only one (inner) ear. The people in the room were talking to me but unless I could see the person or people, eye ball to eyeball, I could not decipher all the words...
