i was born hard of hearing both my parents are deaf. i grew up in a "hearing world" where i hung with hearing people all my life. im 23 going on 24 and started wondering will i be hard of hearing my whole life? or am i eventually going to turn 100 percent completely deaf? i always worried about turning completely deaf but dont really care if it happens knowing me i can accept it besides i already had the pleasures of listening 2 biggie,tupac and my fav rapper big pun lol the sounds and lyrics will forever be in my head but still would want to know do you know any1 in there late 30's early 40's who are still hard of hearing or did they just completely turn deaf?
