Fuel, it'* great the way you have taken what life has given you, embraced it, and made the best of it. You have every reason to be proud.

I wasn't like this before, it was in jr high school when I thought, "What am I doing?""I need to be proud of myself for who I am" then I changed completely.

I'm happier than I have ever been. And I'll be even happier when I finally attend a meet and meet all the fellas.

i got a question for you: If you cant hear, was it really hard to learn English? What did you have to do to learn to read/write/type? I think it is great the way you live your life. You probably live a better life than most people that can hear, becuase you dont let stuff phase you. You my friend, are what the world needs more of.

I'd agree that it'* pretty cool that you don't pity yourself and all.
Sometimes I wish I was. lol. I have this problem where I can't even think if someone is talking a tiny bit louder than everyone else around me. For instance, on the train, I'll read the same paragraph over and over in the course of an hour because someone is babbling a little loud and I can't concentrate. I can't do anything else but listen to it. It sucks because I have to listen to some of the dumbest things.

No, it wasn't really hard for me, it'* probably the same thing as you guys learning how to talk really because sign language is my voice so therefore I learned at the same rate as you guys did. All you have to do is assoicate a sign with the object that sign means, same as a word for that object. Writing, again same thing. Type, obiviously I took keyboarding classes.

Thank you for the comments.

95naSTA, I also have the same problem, you have a problem with noise distracting you, for me, it'* vibrations, I'm much more senstive to them and I can feel them and it really distracts you. Smells too.

Hey Fuel, Wow, what courage, and let me say how I am so pleased to know that there is someone on the site who is deaf. I speak sign, I work with a little boy at our school is deaf and and I love my job!!! I have been speaking sign for a while now, our son Andrew was diagnosed as deaf when he was 1 year old, he hears fine now, unless if you count the number of times you have to ask him to clean his room!! I just finished my level one signing course and starting Feb 8th I will be on to my level 2, which means then I can translate for churches, speeches and so on. I had to update my courses, seeing as I was a little rusty.

Fuel I do need to ask you this question, what is your feeling on implants, for you dirty minded people, not those kind of implants. In talking with other people who were in the course with me and my instructor there are varying opinions, I just would like to know yours.

You will have to come to the WCBF so we can talk!!! Of course in my course I have learned that you and I will have different signs for the same things.....I find that so interesting that in one part of Canada or the US there are special signs. And also that if you go to say Germany you need to learn a different form of sign.

Anyway I have rambled long enough!

Is it true that you can hear/feel those really annoying loud buzzers on those really old stoves?
