Hello from a newbie


New Member
Hey! I'm SpiceCake, a mid-30s mom and mental health therapist in the midwest (US). I was diagnosed with a hearing loss several years ago and am a hearing aid wearer, but my loss is getting worse, so I'm trying to learn ASL as well. Unfortunately, I don't really know anyone who uses it, and it seems like any ways to connect with others who do in my area have more or less stopped due to covid. I'm getting on here in hopes of learning more about how to navigate the world as my hearing continues to fade, and develop a new sense of community.

I'm from the Midwest! Missouri :) Welcome to AllDeaf :) I hope you find some helpful resources. I posted some that have helped me the last 3-4 years that I've been learning. They'd be great receptive skill building.
