First of all, congratulations on going to college! It's amazing that you have overcome so much and your parents must be so proud. What is the hardest thing about your situation that you have to deal with daily? And what are your hobbies and interests?
ScribbleScribe272 karma2013-08-18 18:30:27 UTC
You know. I don't feel I have overcome anything. I've just done the things that everyone else has done. I can hear people speak very well with my hearing aides, so I feel I have had an advantage in learning language over the Deaf students I've been around. So it's really a no-brainer that I'd be capable of going to college.
What's the hardest thing? The hardest thing for me for years was the loneliness. It's hard for me to make friends because the first thing people do when they look at you is to identify you by your face. And, mine is different so people tend to be intimidated by me and keep away from me.

I hope it's not a too silly question, but.. Do you have a tongue?
I've read all the questions and answers and must say that I really admire how strong and confident you are going through all this. I guess the problem with "normal" people is just that we don't know that defects like that even exist, and so we are curious and stare...
ScribbleScribe16 karma2013-08-18 23:24:44 UTC
No I do not. I have been told i have a very small tongue but I have never seen it so I assume I don't have one.

You make a big square a smaller square.

[Serious] Have you ever performed oral sex? How did it go?
ScribbleScribe1 karma2013-08-18 19:34:19 UTC
This is not a question I wish to answer in public when I am being very open with my identity.

ScribbleScribe2 karma2013-08-18 19:08:22 UTC
Nope. Gallaudetian here.

How much time do you spend wondering "why me"?
ScribbleScribe36 karma2013-08-18 18:52:55 UTC
None. I just exist, like everyone else.
Of course occasionally I wish I was a princess from a royal family and had my own helipad...but, beggars can't be choosers.
