Love, peace and my music
I was born in Europe. I gradually lost part of my hearing in the past few years. I can still hear with hearing aids. Without them I struggle especially in social situations. I am mad as hell at the way some people have reacted toward me and very disappointed at the lack of resources. I am shocked that being hard of hearing is treated like a choice. I have one son who is 2 1/2 years old and I work as a psychotherapist
Even when there is uncertainty you turn into it and continue moving forward.
