I no longer attend the afternoon social events in the summer house where I live. My hearing its so poor now that I can't follow a conversation. I still go to the quiz mornings as fewer people attend and Barbara prints the questions for me.
I used to rely on lip reading to back up my lack of hearing but now I can no longer see well enough to lip read.
I can still manage one to one conversations but groups are really difficult.
I have an audiology appointment in a week, hopefully they can help improve my hearing.
On the bright side this has given Steve an excuse to have a rant about how he gave up the boat as I couldn't manage it any more. And now I'm not taking advantage of the events on offer here.
Steve had another excuse to rant today when a parcel arrived from Amazon. He stormed into the living room, " More carp you've ordered from Amazon! "
it was something he'd ordered and nothing to do with me.
