I'm always asked, "What is it like to be deaf?" I wrote this Epinion to introduce a bit about my life with hearing loss: http://www.epinions.com/content_4738687108.
There are five generations of hearing loss in my family. My great-grandfather, my grandmother, my mom and all four of her siblings and all of my siblings, plus my kids and one niece all have various levels of hearing loss. All of us were born hearing.
