Advantages of being deaf
1. I can sleep soundly through the night no matter how noisy it is since I cannot hear anything. Especially when it is lightning and thundering over night, I don't hear any of it, when I am sleeping.
2. If I don't want to listen to what someone is saying, I can just turn off my hearing aids and that will solve the problem.
3. Some people tell me it's cool that I know sign language and they are asking to learn it.
