Just popping in to say hi. 

My name is Darla I'm from Michigan but originally from Ohio.  Married almost 25 years and mom of twin boys who will be 22 in a few months. 

Im currently 48 and have been hard of hearing all my life but have never learned ASL.  Now thanks to the internet and increased ASL information and tutorials available online I just started to learn. 

I've always wanted to learn but never did as life got the in the way or I felt insecure (never liked to try new things or something out of the norm as afraid someone would make fun of me - which stems from being made fun of by other kids when growing up). But I just figure there is always a reason we never know of and it just feels that now is the right time.  So I'm learning 👍🏻

I found this forum and am hoping that when I have questions someone can help me out.  

Right now I know some words and can finger spell. It's slow but it's progress after only 4 days.  My current question bugging me is if in the middle of signing I realize I goofed up used incorrect sign what do I do to basically say I made that in error or I goofed up?  In speech you just correct yourself, on TTY or relay you type *** so what do I do when signing? 

Thanks..

    • Hello all! Thanks for taking the time to read my message. It has been a while since I've been active on a forum so this is kinda fun for me :') As a construction worker I've been exposed to loud noise pretty regularly. Sometimes its noise from machines, people working away, and what not. But it would appear that its been having an effect on my hearing! I've been getting my hearing tested quite frequently (I'd say maybe once a year for the past few years). Although my hearing is still very audible, there is some minor degredation. Also I have a family history of hearing complication. The more I think about it the more it seems like it might be a smart idea to learn to sign. I started learning online recently and found the process to be quite fun. Not only a valuble language, as a social person being able to opens doors to communicate with people that I may have had more difficulty with in the past. I really enjoy outdoorsie stuff (hiking, kayaking), and socializing, I'm a film nerd :') So what is your favorite movie! Please to mee you. Jo.
