    I've researched health and deafness to a great extent, looking for solutions to problems that I've had. I personally have Waardenberg's ssyndrome, inherited from my father. My father, grandmother and great grandmother all had it, however, none of them wore hearing aids. They all suffered from...

    Hearing loss Pet Peeves!

    I won't fake hearing anything if I can help it.... too much stuff goes missed and then you really have a problem on your hands. If it's someone you really can't understand then make them write it down. Part of the reason why I hate the phone... I don't trust translators or videophone...

    I’m late deafened and find myself not being able to identify with either hearing or deaf world. Anyone else feel the same? Trying to find my place.

    Just looking for HOH/deaf friends. I don't do fakebook or any other kind of social media and I haven't really talked much with HOH or deaf ppl since before I was married. Just trying to fit into the hearing world best as as I can. Getting tired of fighting the hearing world, would like to talk...
