I was born a premie with severe hearing loss. Yet I turned out to have perfect pitch (both kinds) and took to musical instruments early.
Just because you had a shit time of it, doesn’t mean your kid would.
Left ear got almost none. Right ear low quality and drops off exactly at 5000Hz. Tried hearing aid in 6th grade but didn’t take to it.
Worst I deal with is having to sometimes ask ppl to repeat. Also, I wouldn’t want to be in a situation with an American cop ’cause they expect you to give a timed response and proper hand movements before firing.
I mean its your choice – and maybe you wouldn’t be the best role model with that attitude – but it’s still an asshole move.
