My wife loves comedies, I get nothing out of them due to my hearing loss, even with my hearing aids. Comedies give me a headache, because I have to work so hard to try to figure out when the audience is laughing. I can’t understand enough of what is said to understand the punchline. I have been called a sour puss for not laughing at a joke that I never understand was a joke.
People with good hearing just can’t understand how it is or feels to have hearing loss.
I just don’t understand what is being said most of the time. I am accused of not listening, when really people don’t know how to speak slowly and clearly. Then there is the noise pollution that is everywhere, even with hearing aids it is almost impossible to understand one person talking to me, try being in a room where a lot of people are talking all at once.it is lake being at a pond or lake in the evenings with the frogs croaking and every possible insect making their sounds all at once. Then you add to that normal hearing aid electronic sound amplification and it just gives me another headache.
Having hearing loss sucks, and oh yes people wearing the damn face mask now makes it ten times worse.
I knew a lot of people like closed captioning on TV and movies, but I don’t I just prefer reading the book.
