My husband's hearing has been getting worse and worse over the past few years. He now has two hearing aids. Should be great! Except that he will not use them! I have to repeat everything I say to him at least twice - sometimes more. And end up shouting! He objects to my shouting, saying I'm being aggressive - which I'm not! (But you can't shout in a kind and gentle manner!)
Keep repeating and repeating myself every day - all day. This is driving me nuts!
The TV is turned up so loud, that it's almost unbearable (for me).
I'm thinking of telling him that I will say something just once, and if he doesn't hear me, that's tough - I won't repeat it.
Am I being cruel?
Silent treatment - son
Caught in the act - neighbours
How to say it - 'no'
