Thanks for posting that. That's some great stuff..I know exactly how it feels to be deaf. And I know how people reacts to it. I'm tone deaf. I can't hear high pitch sounds. Music sounds like just noise to me. of course most of it is just noise. lol. And some women's voices I can't understand. I can hear most every thing I just can't understand it.
If you're blind or crippled or something else that people can see they can accept it. But if you're deaf you're a freak. My girlfried has perfect hearing. sometimes when she has to repeat something 2 or 3 times she acts agitated, because she can't see how I couldn't understand her. It's to the point where I just ignore most of what she says. If I don't undertand her the first time I just let it go..
