Many Ears Disease

R has recently been diagnosed with this disease and it doesn’t mean he can hear way better than anyone else.  It’s actually spelled Meniere’s Disease and it causes sudden on set vertigo (which causes vomiting and extreme headaches – GROSS), ringing in his ears and reduced hearing in his left (?) ear.  I believe he is going to try and use this to his advantage, like when he selectively doesn’t want to listen to me or hear what I have to say, he’ll tell me he couldn’t hear me. 

R went to a concert this week and this seems to aggravated his already delicate condition, so the night after the concert he jumps in bed and I can hear water running.  A fast drip that can only mean the tap has been left on.  As he woke me from my precious slumber I somewhat crankily asked him if he left the tap on – he denied of course, but since I was in such a fabulous mood he ripped the sheets off and stalked off to investigate.  Yup, sure enough the tap is still running, and he couldn’t hear a thing.  This newly diagnosed condition of his can be both good and bad for both of us, and everyone else that he knows.  If I forget to tell him something, I can say that I did tell him and he’ll just claim he didn’t hear me.  🙂  Or, I will tell him, he will hear me and he’ll forget and then claim he just didn’t hear me.

    Have you met his mother? This could be an example of the “orchard effect”.
