Once upon a time there was a young girl named Jane, who was a dreamer. She had aspirations of one day becoming a great scientist, yet she was held back by one major problem: she was deaf. She was born deaf, and as a result had difficulty with her studies and communicating with her peers. Despite her disability she was determined to do what she wanted to do.
One day, she decided to take the plunge and try a new and experimental medical procedure called irreversible. Through this procedure, a person could gain back the ability to hear. Jane was apprehensive but hopeful; this could be her chance to reach her dreams.
After a few months of debate and hesitation, Jane decided to go through with the procedure. It was successful, however, the medical team made it very clear to Jane that the procedure was irreversible. It wasn’t something that could be reversed in the future if she ever wanted to go back to the way things were.
The months following the operation were the happiest of Jane’s life. She could finally hear, speak and communicate with her peers. She excelled in her studies and went on to become one of the greatest scientists of her time.
Unfortunately, despite all of her newfound success,Jane soon realized that with the procedure came two not so great consequences: One, she could no longer experience complete silence. Two, the voices of the people around her were always present, even when they weren’t speaking.
At first, Jane was able to cope with this, but eventually this constant barrage of sound began to take its toll on her mental health. She was constantly exhausted and overwhelmed. Her dreams of becoming a scientist quickly went up in smoke, and her days were now spent struggling to simply get up in the morning.
The moral of the story is that sometimes the consequences of our decisions, even if they are intended to be positive, can be irreversible. That is why it is important to think carefully and do our research before making any major decisions that could affect our lives in a deep and permanent way.
