Hi, And thanks for not being mad at me. Weirdly enough some decades back I had reallllllly bad teeth (this is likely more than anyone wants to know, lol) anyway I took so much aspirin to try to combat the pain and didn't know asp. could create holes in my belly...anyway at that time it was as if sounds were coming at me through several feet of water. But I stopped the too-many aspirins when I finally found a dds who would do what I needed: Get the poisonous things out of my face!! And my hearing came back. You're right, the fact we don't usually meet up face-to-face means that we should be extra polite and not run off at the mouth too much. I just get carried away sometimes and feel like an almost normal human being, and say too much. Again I am really sorry. Lea.
