Today, I went to the doctor after being sick for weeks. I found out that I had bronchitis that then progressed to pneumonia. My girlfriend is hearing impaired, and when I can finally get words to come out when I speak, she can't understand them. I'm not sure who I feel more sorry for. FML

Maybe try using a whiteboard until you get your voice back, feel better.

That stinks OP! Hopefully it will get better!


Hey now if you've ever gotten mad about something you can say it and she won't know!

As a hearing impaired person, the number of dickheads I've caught via lipreading doing this is pathetic. Only cowards do this.

Chill they were just like irking some fun out the situation

I think you mean eking out #67. Irk means to annoy.

That stinks OP! Hopefully it will get better!

Well **** a duck that sucks. Hope you get better mate.

Animal abuse! but really OP hasn't even the energy to catch a duck let alone **** one

Maybe she heard what she wanted to hear.

Well, he certainly knows what thinking impaired means.

Ah yes. I remember the excitement when the teacher would break 'em out in elementary school. Hope you get better OP.

There is always sign language too. It's a wonderful language to learn and helpful in all scenarios!

#20 I'm a junior in highschool and still get excited when we take them out, especially if I can get the yellow marker.

Exactly. I don't think whiteboards are given much credit. It would be nice if hospitals had them for people with respiratory tubes who are not allowed to talk as they may damage their vocal chords to communicate.

Plot twist: OP'S girlfriend is also illiterate.

Even more magical is a cell phone or a computer. :)

Try communicating to her through writing, like texting each other. Good luck OP

That's inconvenient! I hope you work things out, OP!
