This is how I use tactile sign language to communicate.
Unexpected photo capture.
(I have Usher Syndrome- deaf & visually-impaired).
Hilarious. Explains one of my Usher experiences. Feels so good I’m not alone! Love it!
Today, at a meeting in the conference I accidently played musical chair. I was trying to wrestle a chair away from the table to catch a seat, but it turned out a lady was sitting in it already! Just didn’t see her, because she wore black, had black hair, and the chair to be fair, was black too. I guess I gave her a sweet ride much to my embarrassments and a round of few small chuckles!

Hello!! I went to Gallaudet University last week and I learned something new. Hearing people clap. Deaf people wave their hands. Deaf-Blind people stomp their feet on the floor. That’s cool!
Growing up, my mother would keep rushing to steady my tilting cup to prevent spills. I thought she was just being over-cautious because she’s a very clean person. Entering adulthood, friends and now my husband continue to steady my cup.
Just this week, at a first meeting, a sommelier tried to teach me how to swirl a wine glass property, and he couldn’t.
Then, it dawned on me that this is due to the lack of my sense of balance.
