Deaf/hearing impaired and glad to be here :)

Post by soap » Wed Mar 06, 2013 5:14 am

Hi all... I am deaf and have a hard time getting face-face support. I've been fortunate enough to meet many fellow people from AA suppport groups who are learning how to best communicate with me and this will take time. I am grateful a website is still around for me to browse articles and stories and inspriation through my recovery. I'm just signing in to say Hi! .... thanks for your patience and support... :)
