Tiny irritations we all face each day
My mother in law is very hard of hearing. Has come on over the last 5 years. Had her tested and she 'gets' 2 words out of ten spoken in her left ear and 3-4 in her right ear. She tried a hearing aid, but amplification just isn't the problem. She has nerve deafness and only a cochlear implant will help. She is 91 with many serious health issues - so surgery is out of the question.
Question: WHY won't she LOOK AT ME when I speak to her so that she can at least understand (by lip reading) some of what I say. She will act like she has hear what I say and then if I ask her to tell me what I just said she will say she didn't understand. This is just a TINY daily irritation but I wish I knew WHY she is doing this. As they say, YA GOTTA JUST ''LET IT GO.................''
