I used to be a music lover. I used to play in bands. But no more.
I have no iPod – no portable music player of any kind.
I have to play music out loud. That often is socially unacceptable.
Ear pain is to blame. I can’t stand sound piped into my ear. I no longer tolerate amplified music. I had my hearing checked – it’s fine. So I don’t know for sure what causes my ear problem. It could be the side effect of the lithium I take.
Sometimes I just want to listen, so I have to make a sacrifice. The listening is fine; the pain and ringing comes after.
