    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...

    Yep

    I had a lot of ear infections when little and one of them destroyed my right ear.  The bones (hammer, anvil and stirrup) disintegrated and the ear drum wrapped around what was left.  In the early 80's, they took a piece of bone from my skull and made new ones and skin...
