    When I lost 100% of my hearing in one ear to a TBI, the volume in the other ear went up 100%, and I could no longer 'Localize sounds, to the point of total distraction.

    Hearing Loss & Dementia

    Every "Blow" to the skull, I think, causes Tinnitus in different forms. Some low and dull, some high and sharp and screeching, but It seems to linger on and on and on. My "Bell" was rung big time, on Feb. 6th, 1968, when a "sapper" crawled into our bomb dump in Chu Lai Vietnam, and blew...

    Question: Could a Deaf from birth person "feel",(or "hear through their skull)", the vibrations of a tuning fork held in their teeth.? and if they could, differentiate the different tuning forks. I am HOH, and my favorite tuning is A-432. This would be good to help others know music better...

    If You Like Music, here's one. come to think about it, this could be a "Deaf" bartender, speaking in sign to his deaf customers. C, E-Flat, and G, go into a bar. The bartender says, "we don't serve minors", so E-Flat leaves, and C and G, share an open Fifth between them. After a few drinks...

I've known about the "Space" between notes, since the early 70's, taught to me by my "piano tuning, guitar playing friend", Jeff Cerwinski. It is, as important as the tones and notes themselves.

Strike the fork and hold it all around your head, and see...

    Hello! May I get some help?

    First off, always ask for a LEVEL 2 OPERATOR, and when you get one, be ASSERTIVE and relay ARTICULATED words, no need to mention any "handicap", to a stranger. Once you find a "Human" voice to communicate with, they will usually give you their name, and say, "how may I help you"?, and that sets...
