#25 Deaf, Dumb, and Blind in a COVID Lockdown

I am…

Deaf:  Well kind of. I wear hearing aids.  At least I should be. I had an appointment with the audiologist on Friday after school.  Now it is by phone. But wait! An appointment by phone I think… but I am deaf! How am I going to hear?  And what does after school really mean these days? Well it WAS after 3:00. Now it has been changed to 1:30 on Monday by phone during school hours. Yikes! I should probably change that.  Which leads to DUMB. It seems everything I am doing is just plain DUMB! I can’t remember a thing.

Dumb:  Not dumb in the lack of speech manner, but, unfortunately, the regular stupid DUMB.  I put the trash in recycling and the recycling in trash, I get up to go somewhere and then I forget where I am going.  I can’t remember which latest proclamation explains what about what. Is it just me? My mom has Alzheimer’s. Am I already there?  Yikes! I hope that my dumbness is just from these times of COVID. 

Blind:  This morning I woke up and I couldn’t see straight.  I wandered around feeling dizzy and covering one eye after the other. Next, I peered in the mirror.  Were my contacts both still there? After I poked around a bit, ( not a good idea especially during COVID times), I decided I needed new ones.  Oh that’s right! 2 weeks ago before the COVID lock down swung into gear, I had planned on getting a new pair of glasses and ordering new contacts.  I had just used the last pair.. but,,,, due to Corona, I didn’t go out and shop. And then I forgot..(Remember Dumb?). So I have no contact replacement and am wearing my fiance’s readers.  I already have a phobia of having to look at my less than lovely face on video. The reading glasses don’t help.

Maybe, if this goes on long enough, I will become too deaf, dumb, and blind to remember. Some things are worth forgetting.  

Just another dumb piece of communication during times of COVID.

  1. Your post sounds very familiar to me today. I cannot find my notebook. I remember myself putting down and thinking it would be a good place to leave it for the moment. Nowhere… Sounds like a good reason to take it easy until things get back to normal. Good luck!

  2. You are not dumb, ever. It’s hard when we get older and the senses go….
    I can’t do ANYTHING without my glasses. I freak out and have to say to Brett…”What do the numbers say?” on my phone when I need to know the time…lol. Love you, Wendy!
