Last Christmas my sister and family came to visit. When I walked in I was saying hello to EVERYONE in the room. Apparently she said "hi" to the deaf side of my head and I didn't hear her among the other chatter and noise. I went over to sit by her on the sofa and she yelled in my face, "I said HI!!!....are you deaf or something?!!!!" I just looked at her in disbelief and said...."yes, actually I am!...and have been for about 10 years now." She has known this for years and still doesn't "get it". :-\ ??? It's odd that she tells people about her "poor" sister with vertigo and Menieres, but in person she's not at all intuned to what I deal with. On the other hand we all have to accommodate her problems......which last weekend was an ingrown toenail.
