I would honestly go crazy without sound. I think it would be worse than being blind for me. Music makes such a big impact for me, helps me focus. It is a scary thought hearing nothing or just like the sound of a seashell all the time. I can tell where everything is with sound it is just extremely hard to filter things out. Like talking to a person in a conversation within a large noisy area like a restaurant is difficult. All the peoples conversations, the sounds of spoons clanging, tables being cleared, people making reservations across the room, the damn kid wanting to go home because they don't have grilled cheese, the people in the table across talking about the movie they watched. The worst part is trying to concentrate during all that.
Love or hate me as you will, but live now and in your final breath. In time we shall meet again.
