Although I sometimes wish I was. I live in a hearing world, but can't hear as they can, and tend to be misunderstood, thought of as rude, etc. I'm Teri, hard of hearing, lost one of my beautiful pink hearing aids, so wear neither again. I'm taking ASL FINALLY! I'm so happy about that. I really wish I could afford to get a new set of aids, or at least replace the lost one. I can never hear 100% even with. Hoping to find some new friends, and patience from you, as I strive to become fluent in ASL.
