    We start interesting discussion in another thread and kind of take off topic so bringing here. Journey very helpful to explain 'cha' but wonder about 'pah' morpheme. Do you know where these originate from? Or when you use them with other sign? Are there *other* morpheme? Just want a...

    Age is just number...

    Amongst the Deaf. Have you noticed that the Deaf associate regardless of age? Not when dating, of course, but in group socials. Even here I see how easy to get along with poster regardless if 20 or 60. On hearie forum I probably reply to people more my own age. Just realize today. I...

    Realize no voice...

    I realize today from reading post that I do not have the voice that I want. That I need to take responsibility for the wrongs done me and make difference. That I, me, angry for wrongs. Okay to be angry but, then, do something about. Thank you Becklak today I start being me. Tired of...

    SICK of it!!

    Do you ever just get sick of it all? Asking people to accommodate you? How to talk to you? How to annunciate? I am! I'm *SICK* of it! I think I might go Becklak's route of voice off. As soon as you speak, and hearies know you are deaf, they think you can magically hear. I'm sick of people asking...

    My deaf cat? Really?

    We rescue two kitties from kittie mill a year ago this month. One of the kitties, Sophie, she is so outgoing and needy and world revolves around her. Always try to sneak outside when too young. *DID* sneak out and we think she was lost (I post here about it). Purrs and meows a lot. She is like...

    Happen for you?...

    I wonder if I am the only one that experience these. First, I always feel like up in airplane, or high in mountains, even when I'm not. Ears feel 'pressure' 'plugged' and I open my mouth and move jaw around to release the pressure. Of course, it do not help any hearing but it relieves...

    Lip reading accents...

    I think today about how some people who have accents are hard for me to understand. For example, I'm in Whistler, BC, for a mini-break until Sunday and front desk clerk is Asian but he do not annunciate 'English' if that make sense? I do, however, understand that he tell me about an, how do...

    His profession versus mine...

    I'm feeling confused.:hmm: I grow up with musicians in my family and find it frustrating to not hear the music and words properly. The only way, when I was younger, was to wear headphones with volume really, really high. But, loud sounds really, really hurt my ears and need to be away from it...

    Men and women in conversation...

    Authentic made a post in another thread that got me thinking. Yes, dangerous. :giggle: He say, "Problem is most deaf guys don't like to eye-contact hearing gals." Is this true for Deaf men? For me, I'm the opposite. Maybe because I'm a woman and I want to *read* the hearing male to...

    Sometimes it just takes a woman...

    I have 4 kids. Two accept the Deaf Culture and the other two seem like they pretend that it does not exist (my Deafness and ASL). Of course, it is my own fault that I didn't immerse myself in the Community sooner so that they could also be exposed to it. Then again, my parents raise me as a...

    Do you dream in Sign?

    I don't dream often but, last night, I dreamed and it was all in sign. People didn't speak. Just use ASL. Does anyone else dream in sign? Or, are your dreams with speaking? Combination? Curious.
