Hey! (Well I don’t actually know if anyone’s reading this….. So…)
Grab a drink, take a seat, make yourself comfy… Ready?
Let’s get star, star, starty, starty, let’s get , starty started! (Hope you read that as a song because if not, that would not make sense at all.) okay, I’m a bit odd. Let’s leave it, yep… Awkward.
It has been a long time since I last wrote!!
I am just never in the mood for writing…. So sorry if anyones (at all!) is expecting me to do frequent posts! I’m so lazy when it comes to writing anything, especially on my iPad or on the computer!
Anyway…. My hearing aids all good!
I got my radio aids a while ago now and they are all working now, it is so much clearer to hear the teacher with both hearing aids! I never wrote about this! I have again, been SO lazy!
I got the waterproof kit for my holiday in spring break and I have tested it in the bath. Amazing. One of the best experiences of my life. Now if you are reading this you may have normal hearing and I hope I don’t sound too weird when you read this but as my first ever experience underwater…*stunned silence* WHY DIDNT ANYONE TELL ME IT WAS LIKE BEING A MERMAID! Just think- How would you feel if you were me, to hear for the first time, underwater?
Okay… So for example, when I was younger for homework we had to hear what sounds sound like in different places. One of them said the bath. Now I couldn’t do this at the time so I left the spaces where you had to describe it, blank, I handed it in the next day and my teacher wrote in the box in that red teachers ink as a correction to say, why haven’t you done this, you need to do this!! And honestly… Really? But now I have them I can do it so HAHAHAHAHAAAAA teacher in the past!
Back to what it sounded like, I honestly did not know that when you spoke with your ears underwater it’s all muffled… And I did not know that when you put your mouth underwater and say something it’s all bubbles like your a fish or something… I did not even know what it sounded like to go deep underwater, the sloshing of the water above you. (I said the alphabet underwater, okay! You would do the same thing I’m sure)
So with my waterproof hearing aid kit I went snorkelling,in a pool, on some water slides. And I can hear how loud I’m shouting when I’m in the pool, I don’t realise, but I am really very loud!!! Everyone stares at me like in wearing a ridiculous ballerina costume and my face looks like a gorilla when it’s sniffing the air and my feet look like a oversized penguins. Snorkelling was amazing, I saw loads of fish of all sizes, obviously not the size of a shark or whatever, but they were so gorgeous and beautiful! With the sounds this made the experience much more worthwhile. It was honestly out of this world.
I am so much better at hearing than before. Nobody is being rude to me or in someway offending me about my hearing. I’m enjoying school more now! Some people ignore me at school though, it makes me feel left out, I feel as if I cannot speak to them because they wouldn’t care anyway. It makes me feel as if I can’t have my own opinions, say anything because, do I annoy them too much? The fact I say very little when I’m near them because of noisy situations around me, such as the dining hall at my school or the canteen. They say that why I annoy them, the fact I sit with them but don’t say anything, I would say a bit (okay, maybe a lot) , if I could hear. I mean this could be the same for anyone, deaf or not, you could feel left out just because you missed something, or because of the situations around you
I also got some new moulds for my ear so they stay on, because normally in PE at school they always fall off when I am running so I often leave them behind or with my friend. And I’m so happy because they stay on now, I can finally run with ought looking a bit odd and a bit silly clutching my hearing aids on my ears as I run, when I’m meant to be sprinting!
