Hearing Aids – Curse #3435

Posted on December 1, 2011


We have been having trouble lately with audible silence. The silence is so audible that some of us have lost our hearing. We are now walking around with hearing aids. When the silence grows loudly, we turn our hearing aids off. This is hard to explain to our friends and family. They do not understand how audible silence can be louder than the silence that comes from not hearing anything at all. When they start talking about the logic behind our disability we want to tell them to shut up, that they really know nothing about it, but we do not do that because we want lots of noise and there are few things as noisy as people telling you about yourself.
