I think you have a good attitude towards your hearing loss and this is directed to those who are struggling with their feelings about it.
When faced with hearing loss, the only thing we can do is, first to be thankful for our health and all the good things and good people we have in life. Then use whatever we can to make our situation better…in our case,
using as much technology as we can ,
asking for accommodations, learning as much as we can, advocating etc. Yes, we do miss out on a lot and we come to terms with that and appreciate what we have.
Makes us good compassionate people to be around.
The more involved we are in life,
the less we think about what we're missing. That goes for everyone but this attitude doesn't develop overnight. It takes maturity which is not always measured in years. It takes a sense of humor. It takes a feeling of self worth. And, yes it is exhausting at times.
Hmmm sounding soap boxey now…
Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there in cyber land
