Hi I'm Amy. I life in California and am a nurse by trade. I always had great hearing until about six years ago I suffered major brain trauma swelling that damaged the hearing and vision part of my brain. Early in 2014 I was put in a similar situation with pressure and trauma and my hearing was damaged even more. After many failed attempts I finally was able to pay the 6k for my hearing aids on Wednesday. I'm taking sign language classes and deaf culture class as this is something I'm very in love with and want to embrace before I'm completely deaf. Looking to make friends who can understand.
