I'm 58 physically disabled and hearing impaired(deaf).I use Cochlear implant to hear. I don't always like all the noise so occasionally I'll turn it off and be in my own little quiet world. I've been hearing impaired most of my life but a surgery left me with very little hearing left. At that point Cochlear implant was put in and took the remainder of my hearing that was left(my good ear) I don't have many friends any more Most hearing ones don't want to learn or do ASL they think ooh it's cute to learn until it's a necessity and then are gone. I need to find people who are more like me who understand the challenges we face.
