I know I have some hearing loss. I should go and get it checked out. High tones and phones ringing on television shows are not heard! I have some hearing aids but when I tried wearing them non-stop, I felt dizzy and the crinkling of paper and the water out of the faucet were very LOUD.
So yesterday when I was walking across the hospital parking lot, (with no aids) I was walking behind the parked cars next to our van. Suddenly the car that I was approaching to walk behind, began to back out. I heard no motor. I side-stepped and walked around the front of the car. I don't think she ever saw me.
I wonder if it was one of those electric cars? Or maybe my hearing is worse than I thought.
