Mutt and Jeff

Mutt and Jeff

I have had hearing loss for many years on my right hand side, caused by a virus that I caught on a school trip, but was also diagnosed with Meniere’s Disease last year which now affects my other ear. A recent hearing test confirmed that I am profoundly deaf in my right ear and will eventually lose much of my hearing in the left ear, although I now have medication that keeps me from falling over all the time. 

Anyway, this means that I find it really difficult to hear anything if there’s a lot of background noise or if people are wearing face masks, which makes club wargaming a bit of a non-starter, although I have given it a go. To cut a long ramble short, it looks like much of my future wargaming will inevitably be solo, with only the occasional visit to the club when I can face the music, so to speak. 

I’m sure there are lots of fellow wargamers in the same boat and I know that sight deterioration is also an issue for some of the club members, having a big impact on their painting and a lesser but equally significant impact on reading the small print in some rules. It’s lucky that my hearing problems don’t affect my painting or modelling, so I’m not too bothered if I can’t hear much and will soldier on regardless.

It’s great when the wife is banging on about this and that too….
