New State Association Meandering Through a Hearing World – Weekly Postings:

I have grappled with hearing loss since 1978. Through it all, I’ve faced periods of denial, acceptance, curiosity, trust and hope. I have also felt annoyed, angry and frightened. I’ve encountered despair, loneliness and envy including panic attacks. And I have met understanding people, kind souls who helped me a great deal and others who thought I had nothing short of an invisible plague.

As a way of coming to terms with my hearing loss, I opted to share my stories once weekly. My hope is to better understand myself and perhaps you’ll find a little something in my meanderings that will help you, too. Read more here:
