Looking for friends
My name is Lynne I'm 46 yrs old & have been fully deaf in the right ear and a high level deafness in my left ear since birth but as a teenager I fell into a coma which caused me to have MMA ( Methylmalonic Acidemia) & secondary dystonia which causes stiffness/muscle spasm making it difficult for me to sign normally and it takes a while for people around me to learn what I'm signing so I have found it difficult to communicate with people and make friends as any one communicating with me needs to be patient with me as I'm slow at signing. I have an iPad communication aid to help me to communicate with people but people must have lots of patience with me when I’m communicating on my iPad.
I checked your scope website & typed my postcode (East Grinstead) but unfortunately they do not have any befriending within 40 miles from my area, I don’t have any friends in my area & in the south East uk, I desperately need female friends to visit/meet up, text msg etc. I suffer from mild depression & emotional problems, I do really missed not having female friends as my ex old deaf & disabled friends from school have no respect for me, never have time to visit or meet up, they’ve not made any effort to keep in contact with me as they have no patience when I’m trying to communicate with them, I’ve tried my very best but they weren’t listening & are not interested to understand how I feel, it really upsets me
I hope there are females on this site who would like to contact me and possibly become friends. Thanks for reading my post.
