I am so tired of having to explain to people why I cannot understand, let alone hear, what someone is saying. Why is it so difficult for hearing people to understand? Is it that they are clueless? Is it that they don’t want to understand? Do they understand but they’re afraid of hearing loss? Or is it just the fact, that they have no patience to understand.
Personally, I think it’s a combination of everything except fear of wanting to understand. I think people just think, when you say you can’t hear them or you don’t understand them that they just cannot be bothered with having to change the way they ordinarily do things, for us to hear or understand what they are saying. I don’t like to use the words accomodating us less someone interprets it as my feeling entitled.
Too many bad experiences to go into here but today is my I hate hearing people day.
Deaf cultured individuals have sign language to communicate and use interpreters when necessary. However, what happens to those of us who are hearing impaired, late deafened or deaf in the hearing world.
How do others deal with the hearing world?
