    This what my father told me .

    I remember when I was younger I got made fun of by everyone in town. I hated using my voice. I felt freer using American Sign Language and Signing exact English than using my voice.... when I didn't use my voice I was hit by other people at school where I went which was a hearing school.

    Would Like Your Thoughts

    I have made a personal decision on getting a CI for my left ear which is severe to profoundly deaf. I made the decision nobody else but me. No one forced me to do it anyway. My mom is deaf and my father I am assuming is deaf. I don't know if he is deaf or not.
