If I had to pick one….I guess I would have to pick losing my hearing. I would not be happy if I could not see what was going on around me. I could learn how to read lips and sign language, so I would feel like I could still “talk” to people. I hope this does not happen to me, but…if it does, oh well.
As much as I’d miss Bailey’s voice, I’d rather be able to see his face and his children’s faces.
I’m with both of you. As hard as it would be to choose, I’d hate it if I couldn’t see the 3 chicklets grow up and SEE it. I also LOVE to read. I could read Brail but it doesn’t seem like it would be the same.
Same here. I’d choose hearing too. I will be so hurt if I found out I can’t see this world anymore.
Interesting question…gosh, I can’t imagine losing either. Hey, what if we compromise and lose the hearing in one ear and the sight in one eye?
Being def in one ear is awsome. Good excuse for forgeting things. When I put my head to the pillow I don’t hear anythng either. I couldn’t live with out seeing Nicole or baileys smiling faces
Awww you’re so sweet!
Oh, my tummy is feeling a little rumbly….
Get a room you guys!
I would have to say my hearing. I would think that it would be easier to live a more “normal” life without hearing what’s going on around you than not seeing what’s going on around you. Like Luisa said, you could always learn sign language to communicate with others.
I would rather lose my hearing. Then I wouldn’t have to listen to my kids fight! 🙂
I read somewhere that people who have lost both their sight and their hearing miss their hearing more.
The thing about it is, your hearing is what really informs you what is going on “all” around you.
I’d hate to have to choose either one of these, though. I used to be legally blind and once went without glasses for about 6 months, so I do know you can do almost everything, even raise kids, without being able to see. But there is so much joy in what I do see every day. Then again, what would I do without music, birdsong, or my kids’ voices? So I am not going to pick one or the other, just remind myself how lucky I am to have both at the moment.
Hearing. I would rather see things than hear them.
After watching Steve this last year? DEFINITELY hearing. As much as I’d miss sounds, I would much rather keep my sight, if I had to choose.
He’s had so many bumps and bruises just trying to navigate around our house – even when he knows where stuff is, and I’m not being mean by moving stuff around.
Also, if you’re deaf, you can still drive. You lose a LOT of your freedom when you’re blind. As hard as you try, and as hard as others try to help you adapt, some of that freedom is gone.
