May is Better Hearing & Speech Month. The theme for 2019 is, “Communication Across the Lifespan” (ASHA American Speech-Language-Hearing Association).
This information interests me because at nine months of age I underwent a mastoidectomy behind my left ear. Over the years I have continued to experience hearing loss.
But by far, the most disabling communication disorder I ever experienced was when sly old denial whispered in my ear. Initially, I chose to mask the subtle sounds of truth. What about you. In your head, are you denying what you know in your spirit to be true—your life has become unmanageable.
