A Bit About Being Deaf...

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.

You're so funny and you explained exactly what I go through having to try to explain to people, when they ask, well, "What CAN you hear?"

Gosh, this is worth copying and passing it along...

I love you, with no overview!! Your lovin' big sister who always tried to get you to lie to mom, and you didn't know how.....
