    What am i supposed to do now?

    So my brother in law comes home last night and decides he too is now deaf. He announced that he's also going to get a Cochlear implant for Christmas and new hearing again for the new year. He has never even been to an audiologist and has never shown or mentioned any signs of hearing loss. I...

    Need more help

    As some of you read my post earlier about my dog and brother in law, I was out doing some shopping and when I came home my gerbil is missing. Bro in law says he knows nothing about it but I noticed he's been scratching his butt a lot tonight. I can't prove anything but I am suspicious. Should I be?

He is not blood related and honestly I don't care much for him. He will spend hours in the bathroom and always manages to clog the toilet. He...

    Not sure where to post this so I will post it here

    I'm 41 years old and have been hearing impaired since 5. I had spinal meningitis. From 5 to 13 I could hear without my hearing aids but at 13 I had to rely on them all the time. Just another thing a 13 year old needs to go along with puberty and middle school ;). I've never learned to sign and...
