In 2001 I had what is known as idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss.
Since then I was sure that my ears had permanent damage and I experienced the results of the damage daily.
Yesterday I went to have my ears checked, contemplating a hearing aid.
The result of the test: I hear as well as a child. My ears went back to normal without me noticing...
How's that for a good start into the new year?
