Why do some people think it’s okay to ignore other people in the room or have blatant disregard for their feelings? I’ll make this simple. I have tinnitus. For anyone who doesn’t know what that is, it is a ringing in the ear that never goes away. It can be extremely low pitched or it can be very high pitched. The volume usually varies from one person to another also. Mine is in the high pitched range with low to medium volume. It makes going to listen to bands very difficult as my ears will actually start to hurt. Some people it doesn’t affect that way, but it does me.
One thing that’s hard is the tv volume. I usually don’t have it up very loud because the louder it is, the more it irritates my tinnitus. I will start to think I would rather just shoot myself than listen any more. I know I should be a better hostess, but I cannot deal with the tv blaring all the time. It’s more than I can take and I think I’m going to strangle someone if they can’t turn it down. So right now I am hiding in the bedroom so I can have a break from the noise. The worst part is I will be considered rude because of it. It will come back to haunt me somehow.
I am so pissed about that. I can’t even have consideration in my own home when I ask if it’s too loud. I just have to deal. Maybe I should leave. I could go down to the boat and enjoy some peace and quiet for a change. If I left? Hell to pay!
