I've been hard-of-hearing for all of my life. Moderate to severe. I'm in my mid-twenties now, and I've been feeling "isolated" for a few years now. Before, I did my best to cope but lately it's been harder to deal with it; especially when my hearing partner is always talking with their friends over the phone and going out to loud places. My partner always seems exhausted or disappointed when I'm not enjoying myself in these loud environments. It's hard to make friends or communicate with others. I'm mainly around hearing people. I can't seem to make friends, and a lot of the times hearing people are put off by the accommodations I need, or by how I sound when I talk or simply the situation doesn't benefit for me to socialize in. Not really sure of what else to do. I feel really depressed. I'm not necessarily suicidal but I don't see a point to life when I constantly feel like I don't belong anywhere and I'm always alone. Idk what to do. I was kinda hoping to see if anyone here felt the same way.
