HE MISSED THE PUNCH LINE
Missing the punch line can be embarrassing and humiliating. People are laughing all around the man in the middle. He has a hearing loss and often misses the central punch line of the joke.
Missing the punch line is the story of my life as a profoundly hard of hearing person. It happens in every social event, at home, at work, and in church. What is sad, it happens when I am wearing my hearing aids.
When I ask a person to repeat the punch line, they laugh at me for missing it. When I asked again, some people get upset and angry that they have to repeat it.

Life is filled daily with misunderstandings over a joke, getting an address, hearing numbers, directions, and spelling a word or a name. These mistakes happen on the internet, telephone, or watching TV or a movie.

We Are Here to Help You
My name is David M. Harrison, with my wife, Cathy. I was born with a profound bilateral hearing loss. All my life, I felt the sting of discrimination and shame of a hearing handicap.
It was not until 2006 that I cried out for help. There was no support group or doctor to get help. I prayed and fasted for fourteen days. God opened the way to study with the American Academy for Hearing Loss Support Specialists.
