"From the darkness, sleeping light." Formerly luminus dormiens. Lux pacis, light of peace.

a different classification

It is absolutely fascinating, but I never thought of myself as being severe to profoundly deaf. I always thought my hearing loss was moderate to severe, but after getting an audiogram, I see that all the circles and x's are curved, and very close to the bottom on the decibel scale.

How much information have I lost in my deafness? Practically 80 percents. Since I do have some residual hearing, but it might as well be 100.

Often, I am uncomfortable looking at people to lip-read them, because for some reason, hearing cultures regard being stared at while talking to be rude. Yet, how can I learn to speech-read?

One way is to meet people by coming up to them and say, "Hello, how are you? What is your name?"

One of my struggle here is to change my nature toward a more extrovert personality. It's hard. It is like forgiveness. Time must be added to the brew before it boils cooked.
