As someone who loves somebody with hearing loss, I found this depiction from Duracell to be pretty much the most accurate reflection that I've ever seen:
While the baby thing was over the top, the rest of it remains quite accurate.
Hearing loss in incredibly hard. The entire world assumes you can hear just like everyone else, and accommodations are few. It's not for the weak.
And that's one of the reasons why I admire and love my wife so much.
