Lately I have been discovering the blessings of being deaf. But while it doesn't bring me down as much as it used to, I still have my struggles with it. Living with deafness in a predominantly hearing world, I get by very well using hearing aids and live a relatively normal life. Right now though, I am struggling quite a bit again and in need of prayers. I find myself incredibly exhausted as my mind works harder to hear the world around me. And I feel alone, as there's not a lot of people around me who understand the struggles of deafness, in which I can share feelings and experiences with. I am so tired of trying so hard to fit in, to show that I'm "normal" and prove I am capable and reliable. My faith has helped me tremendously, and continues to do so. But I could really use some extra prayers right now. As always, please pray too for the health and wellbeing of my family and friends. Many Thanks.
