Hey guys, I havent been posting to much lately, but incase you dont know, im 16, and cut about 40-50 lawns in the season. Well guys, I used those big goofy ear muff things in the begining of the year for about a month, then got sick of them (made your ear sweat and gave me pimples and crap). So I quit wearing them. Well I went to the doc the other day, I havent been hearing good lately so they ran a hearing test, and they said I didnt do to good on it, so I have to go in for further testing on monday. Anyway, I really dont think this should happen after one year, I know people who have been doing this for 10+ years and have no hearing problems. Seems quite odd... I also have a small hernia (hopefully it'll go away if I take it easy for a while), high blood pressure, and something about my thyroid, and some other crap Anyway, not looking for sympathy, just wondering if anyone else has had bad ears or ear after one freaking year. And I wasnt even going full time until the summer. Oh, and its only my right ear. This will suck if im 16 with a hearing aid, but hopefully I wont have to get one I guess ill be back to those goofy muff things, or atleast plugs. Thanks Guys. Have a good Holiday Season!
