hello all, this is my first time posting just trying out this app. I am deaf in my left ear, due to having a tumor at the base of my skull. It was an extremely rare the type of tumor. It all started with a whooshing in my ear and luckily I got it removed in time.. My question is what is the best way to cope with being half deaf? How do you let people know?
