    Mostly Deaf

    I don't know why I'm deaf in that ear, but it was detected when I was about 8. I used to live near some very noisy neighbours, so being able to lie on my left side and get to sleep was a bonus. I can play music by ear, and apparently I have a nice gentle touch, so it's not all...
