To make matters worse, he realised that his hearing problem was also affecting his personal life, as he struggled to hear anything that his wife says. This led to a strain on their relationship with his wife stopped talking to him.
“I couldn’t blame her as I can understand how much of a struggle it is to talk to someone who can't hear properly.”
However, Alex claimed that it did make him feel all alone in the world.
This loneliness led him to easily get angry and so he lashed out to anyone that crossed his path. While he knew it wasn’t a wise idea, he simply couldn’t contain the anger which was accumulating inside of him.
“I was frustrated because I felt like I was being left behind as the world kept going forward.”
His wife, Sandra noticed the changes in him and urged him to see a doctor for his hearing. Alex was reluctant in the beginning but after being persuaded by his wife, he gave in.
“When your wife demands you to do something, you’ve got to do. Otherwise, you better prepare for war!” he teased.
