In the society, you are very often perceived as cloistered, confused, uncommunicative, remote from the world and the people. Untrue information about you make you in some way excluded from society. It cannot be a surprise, because most people can't understand how you feel – they have no trouble hearing and they are not able to imagine what it's like to be a deaf person. Hearing loss is a kind of disability – although almost unseen, it has an unusually negative impact on overall human development.
