  1. That’s interesting. I had never thought about hearing loss that way before. It reminds me of my own efforts trying to have a phone conversation. Though I can hear just fine, I expend so much energy trying to figure out the other person’s emotions (in the absence of facial and body language cues) that it is hard for me to focus on the words they are saying!
