    Hello if this helps you. I was the only deaf person in my high school. It wasn't easy for me and felt like an outcast. Social life isn't that great but I had my family who really care, support and love me unconditionally. It's very helpful to have a support system to get you through. Also my...

    Excited but scared

    Mistakes happens about a mix up and wrong time. I understand that you are very new to hearing aid. I'm just wondering if you can hear good. Reason I am asking is that there is a phone technology that you could call and still maintain your independence, not to have to depend on your husband. This...

    Does deafness get better as one gets older??

    Thanks for sharing it with us. I’m sorry that you had to go through rough time with them. That isn’t right at all. You are human. Do you think it would be helpful to have someone from the Dept of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Office to contact them and educate them about the deaf culture, ways to...

    Sure we can communicate. Can you share with me a little bit more about yourself? You said you want to learn more signs. Have you take an ASL class? The more you share it with me, the better idea I can help you with. Smile. God's blessings

    Welcome EmmaraV to the! Thank you for sharing your struggles with us. I get it what you mean! I am myself deaf. The best way to learn sign language is to use ASL. Lysander is right about the differences between ASL, PSE and SEE. ASL is the best visual language and most deaf people...
