Seven Years

Blindness separates us from things, but deafness separates us from people.
— Mark Ross

I’ve been so distracted this past week that, for the first time since it happened, I forgot that yesterday was the anniversary of my hearing loss.  Here’s my post from last year.

  1. Aw Mel, I am crying over reading what you wrote last year.

    You may not think you are special or a role model for the hearing impaired but you are. What you went through is one of my biggest fears and yet at the same time, if it happens, I know it will be okay. Why? Because I have met you, and talked to you, and I know that while it would suck being thrust into such a scary situation, I would be able to get through it. YOU taught me that.

  2. Oh, Kari. That’s so nice of you to say, thank you. It really means a lot to me.

    And Dawn, I guess it has been that long, hasn’t it? Wow! I’m so glad.

  3. Wow. Seven years. When I filled out the reference today it asked me how long I had known you – I count by how old Grace is – eight years. Wow!

    With all we have been through – I am so glad we are friends. Other than the flashing lights in your apt I often forget you are hearing impaired. One thing is for sure – without you I would never have learned to text like a teenager 🙂

    I ❤ U!!
