    • My first impulse is to say deaf.

      I work with so many old people who are nearly deaf and they miss out on so much of life because they can’t hear.... or are a total pain in the ass because they can’t hear.  

      I’d rather be able to have a convesation with my children than see them.  I’d rather hear the birds sing than watch them flying.

      But, as bad as my hearing is getting, I’ll probably be one of those deaf old ladies.

    • Deaf.  I’m deaf in real life.  High fever caused my deafness at age three.  During my childhood years, I had always wished that I can hear and understand words in music; be able to understand words on TV/movie (that was way before closed captions invented), be able to join other people’s conversation.  During my teen years, I wished that I can understand what’s my teacher were saying (books are my teacher), I couldn’t participate in the play or sing in a glee club, can’t play in band, and stuff like that.  After college, looking for employment was very extremely difficult.  Most jobs requires to work with phone and communicate with workers/customers.  Can’t join military, labeled as disqualification due to deafness.  When I became a Mom, my whole world changed:  I went from “wishing that I can hear” to “I’m happy with the way I am” because, with my eyes, I can be able to see my child growing up.  I don’t need to hear him, as I can feel his voice and watch his sign language for me to see.  We have great technologies today:  closed-captioned everywhere, even public movie theater, interpreters available everywhere, employees more acceptable to hire deaf people, video phone, text message and video cell phone, so many more to list.  I can say that I am very happy that I’m deaf than blind.  I thank God for giving me a pair of healthy eyes to see the beautiful human being: my son.
