hello! from 1999 - 2009 i gradualy lost my hearing. did not expect to loose the rest so soon. i need direction on what to do. at work some times i feel left out of conversations. not everyone stops to say hi, maybe they would have to write it down and that would take to long or they are affraid because they can`t spell. this is all new to me and any advise is welcome. :shock:

It's really good to be able to read lips well, find a class or ask your doctor for contacts to learn this, i'm self taught and it's not easy...i did take sign language classes but never got to use it! hearing people can't sign, hahaha I study body language, their hands, eyes, expressions, it's quite a process to watch for all the pieces of the puzzle..

Welcome, trullee, and I do hope that you will join the thread that Bott linked you to. Just to to the post that says "Bottesini", look for the web address in her message that says "general chat", point your icon, and left click your mouse.

You can receive training to help you with lip reading skills, but keep in mind that the situations in which lipreading alone would be effective are limited. You might want to consider written communication, as well.
