Since my hearing has been on the decline, I have trouble not only keeping up with the world, but making people understand what it’s like! I’ve even had people test me, to see if my hearing is that bad, by whispering, making loud noises right behind me, etc. Not cool.
If I could get everyone in my life to check out this Hearing Loss Simulator, knowing that I have moderate to severe hearing loss, they might be a little more helpful. I’m not looking for sympathy or flowers (send candy, I’ll appreciate it more), but just for people in my life to work a tiny bit harder to keep me included in the conversation.
To everyone: I want to know what you’re saying. I promise I’m working harder to get the info than you are to give it to me.
