Darla

Newbie here.

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..

    • Hi hello! I'm new to the forum. I was born hard of hearing, but only recently learned about the Deaf/HoH community and American Sign Language. I attend two schools and take ASL classes at my local community college. I love signing because it makes communication easier/enjoyable/understandable for me and I regularly attend Deaf socials/events because I enjoy making new friends. This summer, I took an amazing opportunity to study abroad for six months, but am now worried about not having the opportunity to retain everything I've learned thus far and feeling isolated again. Hence, I joined this forum. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better! Thanks!~
