Those not experiencing it, cannot imagine the degree of negative influence it brings about in a household. Described briefly, my wife yells pretty loudly when she wants me to definitely understand what she has said. Often, I don't, though, and then she repeats, louder still, but with a change in tonal quality, an anger if you will, and then it angers ME. Then, I yell back. OK, at home inconvenience, out in public, downright shameful. About a year ago, I bought hearing aids, pretty good ones. Better, but not quite like normal hearing. Have many of you folks experienced similar episodes?
