Thanks Sherrine. Yes, you do seem to have a positive attitude! That's always been a challenge for me. A lot has to do with my childhood.
Anyhow........I know what you mean about
people wearing their mask under their noses. I just want to say to them "You DO realize that your nose is connected to your mouth and lungs, right???" Back when the virus was well underway, I was in the self check-out at Walmart. There was a guy there who didn't even have his masked pulled up at all. I asked him if he'd please pull it up. He got very angry and was mumbling things I couldn't hear, except that he didn't have to pull his mask up for anybody. Strangest thing though, before he left he came over to me and apologized and said "I'm really sorry. That's just not who I am. I'm glad you reminded me." So.........that ended up being a nice ending. But I have learned to be careful, since I don't want to be in a screaming match. Fortunately, by now, most people are wearing them properly. I just avoid the ones that apparently don't know their nose is attached to their mouth and lungs. haha
Back on topic..........I see the audiologist tomorrow, so hopefully a hearing aid will take care of this horribly loud pulsatile tinnitus.
Thanks for your reply Sherrine!
