HEARING LOSS ASSOCIATION

HEARING LOSS ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA, FLORIDA STATE ASSOCIATION ISSUE NO. 40! JULY/AUGUST 2013 Continued from previous page the job I have now. • • • There is an 'inside of me' that is always alone. No one else can visit there. It's been like that since I was a kid. How do you feel about your hearing loss? Crushing at times. Always lagging conversations, robbed of verbal spontaneity. Fight or flight, in times of misunderstood crisis? Post-traumatic stress disorder? So much pretending, faking, bluffing, withdrawal. An innocent means of survival. Hearing loss is 24/7. I am constantly reminded with every conversation, sound, and puzzled face. It really never stops. Not even asleep at night. Overcoming the odds, those occasional triumphs, help boost morale. It's a high most others don't understand. And all it takes is a nod, a wink, or a pat on the back • • • I'm too stubborn to let my hearing loss bother me. Yeah, there are times that I wish I could hear better. There are things that I'm less likely to do because of my hearing loss. I live in the here and now. I rarely regret the past and rarely worry about the future. Life goes on. • • • Do you see yourself here? If you’d like to write to tell us how you feel about your hearing loss, we’ll publish it in the next issue – anonymously if you wish. Will you Walk4Hearing? Ed Ogiba of Sarasota will Walk4Hearing Her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise and the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn--that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness--that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.” ― Jane Austen, Persuasion !
