    I'm really glad that you were able to obtain all of the education that you were able to, even although you did not have an interpreter. These days, it's neccessary to have one with how the teachers speak nowadays. Amby

    Java, My interpreter DID call the cse manager- the cse manager IS the one that is responsible to call in to another agency for a sub interpreter. It was not my interpeter's fault; it was my cse manager. She "forgot", and yes- I am putting in some words about it. My mom is bein an idiot...

    To Date a Deafie or Not To ?

    I very well understand what you mean. To be honest, I would not care who I date, as long it's someone that I love.
