Raised on the Southern Oregon Coast, now retired on the Southern Oregon Coast. I was a hard of hearing child who grew up to be a deafened adult. I share and write about deafness, hearing loss and other things I find interesting. I am a 50 something year old woman who could be anyone's mother, grandmother or friend. I've traveled the U.S., and I've lived in Europe. I'm currently residing near the beach with Fabulous Husband and 11 year old son. ~ Joyce Edmiston

"Deaf for a Day" by John Barrowman video
I want to thank my friend and life coach, Christine Carver for pointing me to this video. The gentleman described feelings of frustration and isolation. This is what we who are deaf or living with hearing loss feel like on a daily basis. We get tired trying to communicate and navigating with hearing loss in a hearing world. I wish more people could experience what we do as John Barrowman did in order to help raise awareness and funds for Hearing Dogs.
