Hey there! I'm a 25-year old who's been living with cricket monsters for a few years now. My ringing's stronger in my left ear ...which is pretty strange as my music sources are usually from my right. I don't think I listen to music loud enough to cause deafness. I've known people who play brain-exploding loud music but they're fine so I'm kinda envious ahahaha x___x... but who knows, maybe I did unconsciously listen to absurdly loud music at some point. I had my ears checked back in 2008, and my hearing was normal. It's sort of worse now so I went to see a specialist some days back. No comment on hearing but I was given Betaserc. And err... it did the opposite of what I hoped it to do, so I stopped after a day of dosage... I'm not sure if that was the right thing to do but I couldn't work while feeling like the world is spinning. My health isn't exactly great. I get dizzy spells quite often and my hair is thinning. I think it's mostly due to late nights, sleep deprivation, stress and maybe my consumption of sweets xD ... Guessing it all plays a part in feeding pet crickets. Oh well, that's my little introduction. I hope to chat around with fellow cricket keepers so I don't go insane alone and hope you'd pardon me if I type like I'm on drugs or if I suddenly transfigure into a squid or something.
