Description du Livre

Have you ever given consideration to what it would be like to be deaf? Not hearing a single sound. Sure, it's quiet in your house, but you still hear sounds. I would like to think the sensation would be equitable to being underwater, but that would not be a true statement. You can still hear things while being underwater: Waves swishing and people talking above the water - yelling or laughing. Deafness is pure silence. When something big drops to the floor, I "feel" the thump it made. When my dogs bark, I can't hear them, but if they jump on my bed while I'm sleeping, I can feel they are present to wake me for a incoming visitor, burglar, tornado or other natural disaster. This book is a candid, and comical view about hearing loss, Meniere's Disease, vertigo, and the process of undergoing cochlear implant surgery. It also goes into depression and coping mechanisms for all of the above. It is a MUST read for someone or anyone you know (possibly yourself, but you won't admit it), who may be suffering from hearing loss. Progressive hearing loss is subtle. The sounds we often take for granted you no longer hear. Pay attention to your surroundings next time you are outside. Can you still hear the birds?
