A very good friend of ours (hubby and I) committed suicide Thanksgiving evening. We had another friend check on him yesterday morning when we didn't hear from our friend throughout the weekend, and found him dead. (Gut instinct, especially since he was battling severe depression.) Just feeling numb now. I know the holidays are hard on those with depression.
Thinking a little negative at the moment. A lot going on in the family. Also, going through my address book to write out Christmas cards. So many people have died, moved far away or I just don't vibe with any longer. Sad, but since I lost my hearing, I lost a few friends along the way.
So many large get together's, another one this Saturday. People, meaning my extended family mostly, totally forget that I am deaf and are getting ticked off at me for not being able to follow along....it is so LOUD with all of them around. Got a few negative comments from a family member about me not answering my phone when they call. I told them I do not wear my CI's while I am sleeping. This get together I'm thinking of wearing a name tag that says "remember I'm deaf". If they don't want to talk to me than fine.
