attention "HEARTBREAKR"
 
I am not Kasey Casum and this is not the Top Twenty countdown but, Heartbreakr askerd me this so I will share. Also Heartbreakr ( a fellow tumblr) also posted a picture of myself as well as a video Mandy had made back in the day. the song moved me to tears. Seriously. thank you. x

Ryan,


While youíre doing some New Yearís self-improvmentÖ *

I know you have hearing problems, and Iím wondering if youíre doing anything to slow down the damage to your ears. *You need those things. *Are you taking care of Ďem?

Personally, Iíd rather die of lung cancer at age 70 than lose my hearing in my 30s when Iíve dedicated my life to making songs. *

Just worried about you.

ME- Hi there.

Um, first of all I followed the re-blog to your site. That song broke me down and in a really good way. That is a real honest to goodness angel singing that song. I think about my friend so so much.

As far as my hearing goes, I will tell you a little but I will not go into it all the way here right now.

I have lost most of my hearing in my left ear. And I have lost a considerable amount in my right but my right is better.

It is not fixable. It will only get worse as time goes on. I will possibly be deaf in one ear possibly both. I donít know how long I have. And it was nothing I did that caused it. Something happened and it is undetermined exactly what so I cannot be angry with anyone. I kind of know where or when it happened though. I remember things going wrong afterwards.

Anyway, something is wrong in there. And I donít know everything yet and neither did they.

I am just doing what I can.

Donít worry. I will be okay no matter what.

Thanks for asking and thanks for kind of leaning me into that video. I love it and what is not to love really.

R

That is sad. I know if I was to lose my hearing I would be seriously depressed.

No way for me. I would miss watching good films, and seeing people that I love, but for me I think the lack of sound would be way more of a barrier to communicating with people than visuals.

Also, the whole music thing, without it I don't think I'd want to live. I could still go to live shows if I was blind (sometimes I close my eyes at shows anyway - when I saw Ryan lasy year I imagine that's what a blind person's experience of a show would be like - hopefully the lighting will be a bit better this time around)

I just wanted to point out that most legally deaf people still enjoy music and many still go to shows.

I'm losing my hearing, although not as badly as Ryan seems to be, and it's not fun. Mine is from having swimmer's ear so much as a child that my eardrums have tiny little holes in them.

This is one thing that I do feel for him about. That must be so difficult for him and it must worry him.

Re: attention "HEARTBREAKR"
 
True. I can imagine how worried I'd be if my career depended heavily on my hearing.

His hearing is fine.

I wonder about that too. He seems to be taking it very well and considering he doesn't really take much well I'm suspicious.

:lol I guess that settles it then

:o I believe that his hearing is bad.

I don't know what to believe. :\

However... I found this suspicious.

It's all so vague - (no talk of pain, or popping etc.) I thought that was a weird statement too.

He might be confusing himself with George Bailey from 'It's a Wonderful Life'.

Re: attention "HEARTBREAKR"
 
I know it's fine because I can hear it.
A blind man would know.

I thought he said he had Meniere's disease at one stage?

Karl I don't understand your cryptic comment again.

I could use ewok's help here.
How is David's hearing in your opinion, wok?

tangledup 12-29-2008 02:17 PM

Re: attention "HEARTBREAKR"
 
Are you saying because of his singing?

roxy031 12-29-2008 02:18 PM

Re: attention "HEARTBREAKR"
 
That's what I was thinking, because he sings fine :confused

Karl Does Kansas 12-29-2008 02:20 PM

Re: attention "HEARTBREAKR"
 
It's everything he does that goes through your ears.
