    If you had to choose losing your hearing or your sight which would you choose and why

    I have been hard of hearing for a good part of my life, and know I have missed alot. I would rather hear instead of see. sometimes I see things more clearly when my eyes are closed, the real beauty comes out. Just my opinion, whats yours?

    I would choose my sight! Most noises annoy the heck out of me anyway. I would miss some music, but without my eyes, I'd rather be dead.

    I'd definitely choose sound over sight, because I really could not go without music, so much that is amazing to be heard, and music always stays with me longer than image

    sight? meh.. I'd miss it obviously but i always forget what things look like anyway

    I'm a photographer, writer, and watercolourist, it wouldn't do for me to lose my sight.  I like music and playing the guitar, but they are not as important to me as the sound based stuff.

    I couldnt bear to lose my sight or my hearing ......To never see my 6 beautiful grandchildrens faces  or to hear their infectious giggles would be the end of the world for me...however i suppose if i had to choose one to lose  I would say hearing.

    i am ready to loose both for a bit of insight without which enlightenment i cherish is impossible. i know a blind who doesn't want to see this world and states that the very handicap has made him what he is : a worthy singer.

    actually, both are equally important, Colors as well as Music... So,  life cant be much beautiful without these....UNTIL u learn to enjoy the colors of ur mind and the music of ur heartbeat.......  A world is surviving inside us.....For example, U can feel that when u sit all alone in a silent dark night, even there is no color and no sound... Life seems so beautiful there......So count ur blessings.......Well thats my opinion.......Njoy...!

    I know I have missed alot because I have trouble hearing. Watching my childrens faces go blank because I couldn't hear the little things they have to say. Noticing how people judge by what they see before thay know whats going on. I have met alot of beautiful on the outside people who were down right ugly on the inside, but people flock to them based on a visual.
    I have found more beautiful people by listening to them, even though it's hard to hear them. Close your eyes and listen to the world around you, you hear the beauty of the chirping birds, the small talk from children, happiness in thier little voices. True we also hear bad things, but we also see them. I would rather keep both my sense but my hearing has become quite bad, I wish I could have heard all that has been said to me, I would give up all I have seen for it.

    I love to read  books , mags  hubs etc, watch the odd movie , write use the computer  see new places  beautiful scenery as we travel , sunrises ,see my husband smile at me   !snorkelling wouldnt be the same not seeing the amazing colours etc
    so it would be devastating to lose sight.
    It would be hard not to hear but I could write notes & read them.

    I would choose to loose my hearing. Loosing sight would be too much of a dramatic change. I have studied some sign language and feel that I could still communicate. As far as music, deaf people still really enjoy music because of the beat and base.
