Well, thank you. That’s appreciated.
I’ve always thought that my hearing loss was made a little better for me because I was born with it unlike other people who have had hearing loss for other reasons during their lives. Having never known ‘good’ hearing I think it made it easier to adjust to the hearing I have.
One big problem for me is that I have trouble hearing high pitches such as smoke alarms. I really have to be very close to one to able able to hear it. Other than that I get along like anyone else and never complain about it. God has blessed me in so many other ways.
The smoke alarms where I work flash and talk. You don’t have to hear them.
I used to give safety briefings. I remember telling people to watch out for our deaf colleagues to make sure they would get out safely in case of a fire.
You're right about God having blessed you - with (among things, I suspect) the wisdom to accept your shortcomings instead of blathering on and on and on about them.
Not trying to hijack the thread, but I am so sick and tired of the Hollywood and Washington types who don't miss a single opportunity to talk about their addictions, illnesses, slights by others on social media, etc. ad nauseum.
You are a breath of fresh air.
That’s a wonderful attitude. I lost the hearing in my right ear to do to a brain injury. The ear nose throat doctor told me that’s actually a little more common than people think. Vestibular system and all. But like I said, my left year is perfectly fine which is a much different scenario than you and I applaud your bravery.

That’s an attitude that would be wonderful in a group leader/inspirational speaker for schools, who could lead discussion groups. THAT’S what I wish schools taught our children. Thanks again, Bullish, for just being what I wish everyone was. Positive and inspirational.
