When trying to sing in church I could not hear my own voice, and so gave up trying. Whereas I used to enjoy music, now it just existed and gave me very little lift. I had to try so hard to distinguish any words a soloist was singing.
Road noise drove me frantic. The noises I did not want to hear became a maddening roar, and those I wanted to hear I could not.
After listening to the Sound Therapy tapes, all this is changing. It brings tears of gratitude to my eyes, this recharging of life, made possible by this wonderful therapy. I can now hear the timbre in my own voice as I sing equally with that of others, and I can even hear the birds singing as I walk in the park. I am using my hearing aids less and less.
It is more that just improved hearing though. I find myself able and willing to communicate with people, it is easier to smile and reciprocate love.
