Dealing with Sounds

Hello Everyone,

How is your hearing? Mine? I have been experiencing some sensitivity to certain sounds and noise. Although my hearing has deteriorated, I do experience sound amplification. Sometimes my ears are very sensitive to sound and noise making it difficult to dine at certain restaurants or go to the theater. My answer to that problem is earplugs. Earplugs are always available at home and I carry a set in my purse. The light, touch, and sound sensitivities are a nuisance. I need to journal when I experience various sensitivity issues to help me figure out what triggers them.

Do you have any thoughts or ideas on the topic? I would love to hear if, when, and how you deal with light, touch, and sound sensitivities. Here are my tips on dealing with these challenges:

When you cannot handle light:

- Dim the lights in your bedroom and spend some time meditating
- Wear lightly tinted sunglasses when necessary
- Close the drapes

When you cannot handle touch:

- Let your family know your body is extremely sensitive to touch (sometimes the slightest touch hurts)
- Take a nice warm to hot bath
- Give yourself a soft massage

When you cannot handle sound:

- Let your family know you are experiencing amplified sound
- Turn down the radio or television
- Wear earplugs

Lastly, remember you have the gift of hearing!

Meanwhile, I hope and pray you have a fatigue and pain free day.
