Went back to the ear doctor for some tests today– air pressure, beeps, and speech. My problem is speech, since I can’t use the phone on my left side. However, since I’m a foreigner, she used easy vocabulary, which I could easily get since it was one carefully enunciated word at a time. That I can do. Normal conversation, not so much. It’s not terrible, but it’s gotten noticeable. If it hasn’t gotten better in a few weeks, I’ll head over to the International Clinic and pay their outrageous foreigner fees.
