I am not sure if I have mentioned it on this blog, but I have a severe-profound hearing loss. (This means completely deaf in one ear and almost completely deaf in the other). My husband was hearing.
I wear a hearing aid in my so-called good ear, so usually I can "get along" okay. However, my hearing aid has been acting up as of late, and I have not felt like going to get it fixed. And so, since I have no need to leave the house for a few days, I thought I'd give my ears a break.
Well, just a few minutes ago, I went to turn the stove on to make some lunch.
The stove was vibrating. ALOT.
I got a little worried and put my hearing aid back in to see if I could figure out what was going on. Well, not only was it vibrating it was making a huge noise. It freaked me out! I began to cry.
I finally figured out that the timer on the stove was ringing. I keep forgetting that this stove has a timer as my old one had one that did not work. I must have turned it on yesterday when I made lunch and did not shut it off all the way.
Having not worn my hearing aid, means I did not hear the noise. On the other hand, my poor dog has been listening to this for at least 24 hours now.
Anyway, the point of this is that if Bear was here, he would have noticed the noise and shut it off.
My pup should not have to listen to noise all day and night because I'm unfit.
I'm incapable of being alone.
