Some people would like to pity me, but why should they feel sorry for me because I can not hear, but I really do not see reason for the pity, because I enjoy a full and productive life. The fact that I am deaf has not slown me down much.
In fact not hearing at times can be a downright blessing, especially when our current president opens his mouth, or someone yammers on and on about politics. I don't have to pretend not to hear them all I have to do is turn away, and not read lips or turn the closed captioning on my television off LOL!!!
Seriously though I know I am blessed, the fact that I am deaf has not changed that fact. I know God is good, and I praise him daily for giving me life, and breath.
I really see no reason for anyone to pity me, and I certainly don't pity myself. I mean so I can not hear, that does not mean I do not leave a productive life, that somehow I am able to do less. The only thing I can not do is hear, and it has not stopped me yet.
