I'm Listening as Hard as I Can!
~A hearing impairment usually provokes impatience and intolerance rather than sympathy or consideration.  If I were blind, a person would not put his foot out to trip me or get angry because I could not see, and yet because I am hard of hearing (HoH) and have trouble understanding what is said to me, an awful lot of people get angry, as if I am simply not bothering to pay attention.  Believe me, I AM paying attention--in fact, I am listening as hard as I can!~  Tina Blue
