    Anyone experienced loneliness and anxiety being hoh or deaf?

    LOL. you do have to laugh at times. Just today I was headed to the train and a young man started speaking to me (I wear a cochlear but have difficulty still understanding) . Then he asked what I though was, do you want sex....??? Now I know that is not what he said as I'm an old man (but who...

    Best city/town for a Deaf person to live in?

    I'm newly transplated (2 years now) in Salt Lake City utah. The Deaf and Blind community (I'm Deaf-Blind) see,s to be great here BUT I went into coulture shock coming from California.

    Did you know that people who suffer hearing loss are more prone to developing dementia?

    This is so funny that I find this post today. Just had a Doctors appointment yesterday for general stuff and out of the blue my Doctor brings up dementia (I also have high blood pressure). Which shocked me. I'm a bit coming from a different situation as I'm late Deaf-Blind (started age 35) ...

    2 weeks into new CI and going crazy!

    I have a love/hate relationship with mine. I was implanted in Jan 2018. Now 7 months in I still love/hate it. I'm Deaf-Blind so it was a huge necessity. I had been going downhill for so long that I finally gave in (hated the idea). The 1st couple month's was extreamly difficult. Head banging...

    DeafBlind Section
