    HoH and feeling a bit isolated

    And that's what the OP is looking for. I don't agree with everything HLAA "promotes", but it is a good place to find others with hearing loss. YOU are always promoting a full toolbox, but yet you always put down one of the ways people with hearing loss can get support - from others with...

    HoH and feeling a bit isolated

    ^^ She’s always putting down HLAA. I suggest you find out for yourself if HLAA is right for you. I suggested it because it’s a large organization with chapters all over the country and members with all degrees of hearing loss, I believe.

    Cochlear Implant Pain That Isn't Normal..?

    Handicapped Parking Permits & Deaf people

    I doubt those kinds of drivers are thinking about your hearing or even about you. They're only interested in themselves when they drive like that.

    Are you "embarrassed" by your hearing loss?

    I don't. I'm not embarrassed by things I don't have control over. But that's me.

    You do realize those breakfasts are for low income people who might not otherwise have breakfast (or lunch or dinner). I hope you don't plan to abuse this.

    I used to do that. As I recall it was usually during a nap. It may have been during my postpartum depression. It was over 20 years ago.
