Introducing Myself

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

My name is Linzie, although everyone knows as Luna and so now I kind of go by it. I guess she is my cooler more outgoing alter ego.

When I was 17 I met a 4 year old girl who had down syndrome. She signed at me with the biggest smile and I had no way to communicate back except smile too, and my heart mushed a little inside. ok a lot!!!  I vowed I would learn sign language and like every 17 yr old I got busy and I forgot. However I have never forgotten her!

I was furloughed during lockdown and decided to make positive use of my time and actually do the one thing I have always wanted to but not the time to do. Soooo here I am, learning at last and completely loving it. 

I am the person who will watch two people signing in public, and maybe seen as rude for staring, however, I find it a beautiful language and am so glad I have taken this step. My signing is slow and I am hoping to speed up. I don't know many Deaf people. I have friends who are in the deaf community due to their children, but again not many. I hoped by joining here I could meet people and, well I don't know chat, learn and make friends.

I often don't come out on page as loving as my words are meant so I am hoping this is as endearing reading as is being intended. 

 

I look forward to any replies. 

 

Love Luna x

    • Hi, I am Lyn. I am learning BSL as I had a head injury a few years ago. I lost most of my hearing and my speech was impaired for a while. It was quite frightening as I couldn't really communicate with people although I could understand. I found people made assumptions about what was going on particularly Doctors and medical staff. I don't ever want to be made to feel like that again. Or, indeed , be treated like that again. I am now at a time in my life where I have a bit more time to learn so h
