Why Face Me?
I started losing my hearing when I was nineteen. I mostly read lips and depend on modern technology to get by. I have taken American Sign Language in the past and I loved it, but no one in my family and none of my friends or coworkers used it so I quickly forgot almost everything. I have found it helpful at deaf conventions when people speak and sign at the same time. I guess that isn't ASL in the strictest sense.
I just got a cochlear implant and I hope to eventually hear better with it.
