My name is Erin Windheim. I have been hard of hearing my entire life, and I have worn hearing aids since I was four years old. I have a BA in English Writing from Fort Lewis College, and I work in Quality Assurance. I live in Colorado, and I am married to a wonderful and understanding man.
This blog is intended to be a discussion of what it is like for me, personally, to live with a hearing loss. It will also occasionally include research papers or articles that I feel are important.
My intention is to be informative and to raise awareness about those of us who are hard of hearing or deaf. It seems that not enough people truly understand what it is like. I want to change that.
I know I don’t post as often as I should, but do visit often, and feel free to leave respectful comments or questions. I will try to respond to every comment I get.
Also, please please let me know if there is anything you want me to talk about. I am totally open to suggestions.
