Hearing Aids Have Special Super Powers

My Hearing Aids Are My Superman Glasses


The question came up recently that if I were forced to give up one sense, but gain super-sensitivity in another, which senses would I choose?  I cannot imagine that anyone wants to be deprived of hearing, seeing, tasting, touching or talking. Needless to say, that was tough to think about.

As life happens, during my thirties, a determination was made at one of my physicals that I couldn’t hear a thing. I wondered how it was that I hadn’t realized it. The reality was that my family was very aware of how loud the TV needed to be and how they constantly repeated themselves. After a few years in denial, I figured out that I was the one that had a deficiency and not the world around me.

I’ve had hearing aids now for a number of years and it’s okay. I consider them my super power and I’m not sure how I lived without them.

So back to my initial question. What senses would I give up to receive super-sensitivity in another? I think maybe I would give up my ability to taste in exchange for bionic ears. What about you?
