      Medication and hearing loss
      So true. Although, I've had a number of people tell me that they couldn't imagine living with it and it sounds horrible. I think I get more sympathy than apathy. Oddly enough, my boss has tinnitus but it's low he has to plug his ears to hear it. He was the less sympathetic one. Maybe because his doesn't impede on his day to day living. I have a few co-workers who are terrified of getting T. I wish they had taught this in school. There may not be as many of us saying "if only I knew better"

      That's typical projecting your own condition upon others. Like I've a broken finger. You've a broken spine. We've the same thing. So what is the big deal?

      Or your boss is simply a psychopath. Many bosses are.
