I have posted before about my need to wear glasses. I wear them all the time. I truly dislike taking them off- with a passion. I can't see and I feel very vulnerable.
Like my mom, I have poor hearing, especially when there is lots of background noise or poor acoustics. I can hear that something is being said but I cannot decipher the words.
However, I noticed that I feel like I hear better when my glasses are on- kinda crazy right? Maybe it is because when I have my glasses on I can pair what sounds I hear with lip-reading skills.
Either way, I noticed this the other night at pole class. I had been wondering why I felt so much more vulnerable without my glasses- not being able to see or hear properly would do that don't you think?
