I'm hard of hearing, and so is my boyfriend. Never take shame in your hearing, it's really not that big of a deal. Deaf community would totally accept and support you! Learn some sign language, you'll need that when you're older and deaf;)

78, it's really not. There was a woman in my counseling class who is hard of hearing and she carried a microphone with her and give it to the teacher and she'd record too. She always told us and said she didn't want people treating her differently and when we spoke to her to not yell either. Lol. Although one time she was giving a presentation and didn't know how to pronounce a word. We tried helping her by saying it and she said "what? I can't hear you guys remember!" haha talk about awkward x)

68, well to answer your question, maybe it's because 2 is funny and it was a "no pun intended" situation but it could have been intended as a pun... and he wouldn't have complained if he got down voted.

Tried that I spent a whole year ignoring it in 6th grade. I suffered physical injury a few times. My school did nothing and I ignored it. Until I got in trouble for finally hitting back.

It sucks, but I'd probably do the same thing. It doesn't mean he doesn't care about you. Just some things are really funny. Don't let it bother you too much. And screw people at college, they can be dicks. Just gotta grow a thick skin. It's not a reflection upon your personality. Cause everyone gets dealt different cards.

Hey anon I know how it is I myself have a hearing loss and have to where hearing aids but my coping is I make fun of myself like saying "u didn't hear me than borrow my hearing aids." And stuff like that
