Hey! So I have this processing issue - in addition to severe bilateral hearing loss, and tinnitus, I also am a slow processor which is tricky when learning ASL. I'm wondering if anyone else has this issue, and if so, how you deal with it when learning sign. I've been learning with my wife for about a year now in earnest but I keep getting discouraged because I feel like it's exactly the same as it is with hearing people - I have to keep asking her to repeat herself. For that reason I'm super anxious to ever even sign with others but I know that if I don't I won't stand a chance, because being around other signers is crucial in learning the different ways people can communicate and also because language is a social thing and requires social contact. I'm open to any suggestions/experiences.
