Hello, I am new to this team. I have profound bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. I have hearing aids but no longer think they are helping as well as they did. I just learned the cost of recommended hearing aids is $6400.00. So I won't be getting new aids as insurance does not cover the aid just the tests. The good new is I can speech read pretty well as my hearing loss has been since I was a young child. I have functioned in hearing world and don't know ASL.

I also have about 30 pounds to lose thus Sparkpeople to help with motivation.

Look forward to meeting the folks in this group

Hi I am De Anna, and I am new to this team, but I am not new to SparkPeople. I have always had some level of hearing loss due to spinal meningitis as an infant. However, my hearing dropped dramatically in the last 18 months due to autoimmune diseases. It is now in the severe/profound hearing loss range. I wear hearing aids but, they help mostly with directionality of sounds, not too much with understanding speech any better. I would like to learn ASL, I took an entry level college course and I would love to learn more.

I live in Eastern Connecticut and I have been married for over 20 years to wonderful man, and we have two amazing sons, Ali Jack is 15, and a sophomore in college, and Zeyd is going to be 7 on Valentine's Day (he is the best Valentine's Day present I have ever received!). We have lived all over the world, and enjoy learning about new cultures.

I look forward to being active here and interacting with the members of this team.

Eat when you are hungry, eat what you want, stop when you're just satisfied.
