Introducing myself

well, I evidently signed up here awhile ago, I don't remember. Anyway, I have recently lost my hearing due to trauma, and am trying to navigate the world as a deaf person. I'm happy to a be part of this world now, but there is so much of the poeple in my life who dont' know how to handle my deafness and it is changing my relationships and the way I move through the world. I am pretty fluent in ASL, because I had deaf friends, which is why I had a fair amount of knowledge of deaf culture and ASL. I am not upset that I am deaf, but I am trying to deal with how I became deaf.
But I look forward to making new connections as I am now a part of this amazing and beautiful culture.
Anyway, hi. Please don't be a stranger.
