Saint Drogo is one of about five Catholic Saints responsible for healing or comforting the deaf. He was a Flemish man of no particular standing who felt intense guilt over the death of his mother during childbirth. I prefer his myth above the other Patrons of the Deaf because his is the most literary- more interesting than naming some Bishop a saint because that's what you do. I am often overwhelmed by noise and would like, if not to be deaf, than to at least be less affected by sound, to take it less personally.

Thigmophilia is the love of touch. And I am a lonely, sad little girl who wants to be snuggled.

So that's all. Well, not all of them but it's the interesting ones.
