So today, I was on my way home and I was at a stop light listening to "Man in the Mirror" (still love this song). Anyways, I am jamming to Micheal when all of the sudden the sound goes quieter. Song is still playing, but softer for like maybe 5-10 seconds, and then goes right back up.
Now rationally, this could be one of a couple things. 1) The radio station might have gone wonky 2) Perhaps the power in the car was acting up and caused the radio to soften.
But what do I go to? Something must be wrong with my hearing. About a month ago, I was talking to my husband, but everything sounds more fuzzy/quiet for about 30 seconds. I remember I was really freaked out by it, but I, in a moment of normalcy, just moved on and it never happened again.
Now, I have this happen today. Now, this didn't seem like it was exactly the same and it seems like it was probably the car. Nothing was fuzzy, just quieter, and it was so quick it's not like I could have said anything out loud to confirm it was the radio and not my hearing. But as much as I am telling myself the rational stuff, the stuff that it probably is 99.9% is, the back of my mind keeps taunting me with, "But what if it is your hearing? You did have that funky hearing thing a few weeks back and now this? It can't be a coincidence. Google it. WebMD it. Find out what it could possibly be. You could have something awful and here you are just trying to ignore it."
I hate Hypochondria. I hate that it make me focus on that .01% even when something is not rational. I have never heard of anyone having cancer or some awful disease and one of the systems is your hearing randomly coming and going, but yet here I am, convinced that is the case.
So now I know I am going to spend all of Memorial Day weekend obsessing about it. Sigh. Why me?
