I was asked once what is it like to be deaf?

now i should explain that at the time i was very ignorant to my situation (and i was trying to impress the girl at the time) and said that it was like having a needle hammered into my head.

needless to say it didnt work however over time i have had time to think about it and have now come up with a much better answer and i want to see if anyone else feels this way hence why i am writing this.

i now describe it like this. "What is the loneliest you have ever felt? because i have had to carry that feeling around with me all my life (regarding to this situation) and overtime i have tried and found ways to ignore it and these have worked about 70% of the time and now it doesnt always bother me.

Now i am not saying that it is the end of the world for people like us and in my situation i only have hearing loss in my left ear but have the bonus that the outer ear is fully formed and its just the nerve that is damaged.

 

How have you dealt with your condition and does/has it bothered you?

    • I have nothing to do with Deaf/deaf community, but my mum is a carer and had learnt some BSL as a part of that, it sparked an interest in me. I am SUCH a beginner but hope to improve using this site. For now I use Commanding Hands on Youtube to learn.
    • I'm an Access Officer at Pembrokeshire County Council; learning BSL is a natural part of understanding and working with part of our community, so I'm starting my BSL learning journey - I@m not a natural at languages, and have no close family of friends who use BSL so I think I might have to work quite hard at this - I hope I do ok!
