The Isolation of Hearing Loss
 
I don't remember the day that I was told I had hearing loss, but I know it all started in preschool when my teachers told my parents I had trouble hearing. Shortly after, I got my first pair of hearing aids. The audiologists didn't know what caused my hearing loss. I was either born with it or it could have been from an allergic reaction I had to medication when I had the chicken pox. The appointments with the audiologists became a regular part of my life. The small, quiet and seemingly desolate rooms where my hearing was tested became all too familiar. At every appointment I found myself consumed with anxiety and worry knowing that there was something wrong with me.
