I pondered on that question for some time and I answered: It is like nothing moves. There is no sound to the fan or rain. I can scream as loud as I can and not hear a sound. The shower water has no sound when it bounces off the floor. I sometimes feel like I am standing and everything else is rushing by. That is what it is like when everything is silent around me. I can step into a world of sound or a world of silent.
Another question I was asked "Does it scare you when you can't hear?" Sometimes I will wake up in the night when it is dark and can’t see nor hear. I can understand what it was like for Helen Keller who was blind and deaf. I can’t say I get scared but I do sometimes feel lost when I can’t hear.
I treasure my hearing so much and I love it. When I was 6 and lost all my hearing, it changed my life. After about 6 months I was able to hear again…I could hear my footsteps, the light switch flip on and off, my voice and the voice of others. When I could not hear I would put my hand on my neck to feel how loud I was talking.
One thing I missed most was music. I remember playing my mom’s piano and feeling the vibrations and how I longed to hear those notes again. I remember putting my ear close to the radio and listening and most times I would fall asleep by it.
I loved this radio...now I love my ipod! :)
