Scared

Hi

So where do I start. I always had ear infections in my left ear when I was little.

As an Adult my left is my weaker ear ๐Ÿ™„

So anyway about 2 weeks ago I got an infection in my left ear. Had lots of gunk coming out.

Two days later my right ear perforated ๐Ÿ˜”

Since then my hearing has been poor

Iโ€™ve been to the hospital twice now for ENT appointments

Today they said as my ears are not functioning correctly Iโ€™m being referred to the consultant and also for hearing aids

My job wonโ€™t have me back until my hearing is better ๐Ÿ˜”

Iโ€™m scared and fed up. Any advice? Or even a web hug would be lovely

Hi,

I'm sorry you are going through this. I know hearing loss can be very scary. I lost my hearing a few years ago from meningitis. My advice is to go the audiologist and get hearing aids. Hearing aids can help you and then you can get back to work.
