There is no witty title for this one, no sarcasm and no humour; I am without.
This is one of those few blogs where I just open my heart up.
This weekend has been full of emotion. It was a weekend that had been planned to be fun, full of laughter and enjoyment with my daughter, my best friend and his son; thankfully they appeared to enjoy it, although maybe by the end of the time away my upset began to show.
It would appear; if only to me that by hearing less I am actually not able to see as much either!
My sight has not changed by any great degree, but when I find myself struggling to hear in a situation, I also find seeing more of a struggle too.
Maybe it is because I am not getting the sound clues that I rely so heavily on to fill in the gaps that I miss with my vision. Maybe it is totally in my head (as some have suggested)
All I know, is that which ever it is. It has completely thrown my idea of the world upside down and has left me feeling RAW and unable to cope.
I have cried, I have screamed and I have hidden it all from my daughter. She doesn’t understand, mostly because I am not sure that I even do.
How do you explain RAW to a child?
And if you do know, can you please explain it to me ?
