Finally!! My Hearing Is Getting Looked At

Sorry I've been away for a bit. I finally have an assessment on my ears tomorrow! A Doctor phoned and asked to speak with me.
And... I asked him to repeat that! And this was the morning. It's going to be one of those weeks. 
Also I'm being referred to a Restart Work Programme separately which will be hilarious as I'll probably hear 0.7% of the words said.
I might joke about my hearing going. But I do take it seriously. 
So hearing appointment tomorrow at three.
And Restart interview this afternoon at 2.50. There is obviously work for the hard of hearing. I just think I'll be needing more specialised companies, rather than palmed off on UC.
Will update on either. And I'm not "suffering". I focus on the ear that is the quietest to help me sleep. I'm not suffering but I'm still inconvenienced as this is a huge barrier to work.
How am I expected to assist customers or complete tasks if I can only hear the odd word?
Oh well, the seconds count down.

    First off it was a bad line. Enjoyed asking stuff to be repeated. Even funnier was the DWP person was not only listening in but I could hear her Darth Vader breathing. And softly repeating what I said to type up. Ah what a world 
    You really need a sense of the absurd with these things. ;)

    Sorry! Hands full. I'll get a letter of my appointment to whatever clinic my treatment specializes in.
    Can add "Too young to need a hearing aid" to "Our records show it improves in summer!'.
    I'm not negging on my Doctor. It was good to see one and they seemed happier I was in better health that when I'd last saw them over a year ago (I'm not blaming them or lockdown)
