    Therapist Refuses To Allow Me To Use TTS Or Other Speaking Aids

    I'm curious how things are going. If insurance pays for this terrible therapist, make sure the insurance company knows that the therapist is discriminating against you and violating the ADA. Medical reimbursement is heavily weighted based on satisfaction, the insurance company can drop...

    Genetic Modification, Good Or Bad?

    There's over a hundred genes associated with deafness, and people have been weeding out deaf embryos for 15 years at least. We're still some ways from being able to toss out every form of congenital deafness through IVF. I've read of a couple who both carried a gene for deafness but neither...

    How Do I Communicate With People Who Can Hear??

    Darrick, if you haven't considered it yet I would seriously start learning ASL. It will give you more options for comprehension. It can make school so much easier if you're continuing your schooling. I'm also late deafened, and it was such a relief to learn ASL and get a break from the...

    Fire Alarms While Sleeping?

    Also, check with your fire department when you move. In my county they give one free to every household who needs one. http://www.harriscomm.com/safeawake-fire-alarm-aid-with-bed-shaker.html was the one that they stock. I'm also registered in their system as deaf, so that extra bit of...

    Josh Duggar admit on porn addiction and he didn't tell his wife and parents

    Well, more information has come out about the place Josh was sent to. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/lovejoyfeminism/2015/08/breaking-leadership-of-josh-duggars-treatment-center-allegedly-involved-in-sex-abuse-coverup.html I was going to try to summarize it, but there's just too much. This...

    Josh Duggar admit on porn addiction and he didn't tell his wife and parents

    There's some big problems with Josh going to rehab. He was dropped off in Rockford, probably to go to Reformers Unanimous which his parents have supported in the past for drug and alcohol rehab. It's "Christian-based", which all too often means that they don't have any licensed counselors or...

    Josh Duggar admit on porn addiction and he didn't tell his wife and parents

    While I disagree with all porn watching being abnormal and unhealthy, I do agree with Duggar not taking responsibility for his actions by blaming it on addiction. In Gothardism, they have a really unhealthy way of dealing with sexuality. Everything sexually is repressed. Kids are not taught...

    Josh Duggar admit on porn addiction and he didn't tell his wife and parents

    A few things...in the weird Gothard cult that Duggar belongs to, they make no distinction between watching porn and being addicted to porn. If you watch porn more than once, and especially if you watch it regularly, they consider it an addiction. Just watching porn doesn't mean you're...

    Conn.top court overturns death penalty in state

    There have been too many problems with the death penalty for me to feel comfortable having it around. Too many times we've said "Whoops, my bad" after killing someone who was innocent. The death penalty is no deterrent to crime. It costs a ton of money. We need to completely change how the...

    Someone is lying here

    I hate that photo. The woman is being assaulted. Look at how tightly she has her hand in a fist. When they tracked her down and identified her, she pretty much admitted that she felt assaulted but refused to say anything bad. Some random guy just grabs her and start sticking his tongue down...

    Only in the areas around the park, not country wide.

    Listing of restaurants affected by increased wage hike

    The wage increase is only for fast food places that have 30 or more locations in the state. It's not going to affect any of the smaller places whatsoever. Generally the places that have 30 stores can easily afford to pay more with minor increases in the cost of the food.

    They are definitely Asian. You can tell by their ears.

    Jimmy Kimmel upset cause Dentist Walter James Palmer killed “Cecil the Lion”

    These are Asian elephants and likely female. They either don't have tusks or they have short stubs that don't grow like male tusks do.

    Airplane Crash today and is Missing

    In one of the articles I read they found debris on Reunion in May. It was a seat and some luggage. The guy who found it assumed it was a bus seat and garbage so burned it. It wasn't until this chunk of plane was found that he realized what he might have burned. The new bits that were found...
