Apparently my body has caught on to the fact that I am spending too much time stressing out. So now I am experiencing intermittent loss of hearing to one or both ears. "Hysterical deafness" is my affectionate terms for this infrequent occurrence.
This imaginary hearing loss only strikes when I am quite stressed out.
Only I realize that it isn't just that I can't hear, but I have that ringing buzz of tinnitus. Which can apparently be one of the symptoms of high blood pressure. And mine has been a bit elevated recently (even before the recent stress binge).
So the fact that I associate this ringing with stress (which can also contribute to high blood pressure) makes perfect sense. Which means I should probably go have it checked. Which I was supposed to do anyway.
I have nothing more to say at this time, apparently.
