Day 21 — Something you know you do differently than most people
At first I was not sure what exactly it was I did differently than most but the answer came from my hubby!
What you may or may not know is that I am 95% deaf. I went deaf when I was 36 years old for an unknown reason. A couple of years later I received a cochlear implant.
This is not the one I received but similar. If you would like to learn more go here. cochlear implants
So, what I do differently is I hear differently. The cochlear allows sound through the processor for my brain to "hear". It works pretty well for me but sometimes I still have problems with basic hearing.
An example of that would be an incident today.
I work in a book store as a cashier. I deal with customers all day asking me questions as well. Today I had a woman from another country (with a HEAVY accent) come in. Let's just say I was unable to read her lips (which I also do pretty well) and due to her accent I simply could not understand what she needed. I had to ask another co-worker for help.
I also do not always hear or understand well on a phone. I do ok but not always great.
So, there you have it...I hear differently than most people.
How about you? What do you do differently?
