So I had an ENT appointment yesterday - I've been putting it off for about a year, and I figured it was time to buck up and see what they've got to say.
Good news first: I'm not losing any frequencies. Everything they threw at me, I heard. So there's that.
Less good news: I've got speech...
I try really hard not to say anything with an attitude, on or offline. People tend to say really stupid things in anger and ruin their friendships, and I'm not about that at all. I try to leave my snippy attitude in the bedroom when I roll out from under the covers. :)
For sure. But it's only the chapel I have issues carrying in. When we have events, or I've got to go in to do a service project, or I go to see my bishop, I've got it on me. :) I don't really believe in gun-free zones, because, as far as I'm concerned, they're incorrectly named...
I only store it when I'm sleeping - in which case, it's tucked in a holster (loaded - if it's not loaded, it's an expensive club) off to the side of the bed where I have no chance of accidentally bumping into it or my roommate finding it.
As far as transporting goes... I switch back and forth...
Depends on the person, and what their felony was. I've got a buddy who did 10 years for stealing a mounted officer's horse while high on heroin (not his finest moment, but he learned his lesson.). He's a felon for life, even though he's turned his life around, and lives honestly. Can't vote...
As somebody who's spent half of his life in a wheelchair, I can definitely sympathize with this entire thing.
Not brave. Not heroic. Just another human being tryin' to do his thing. Leave me alone and let me go on my merry way.
I'd say I hope nobody treats me like that when I go deaf, but...

No crickets yet, but I have the low hum. Thankfully, it's low enough that if I turn on my headphones, I can't hear it... Needless to say, I can't sleep without music or the fan on, because the sound drives me batty.
