Mental Illnesses Education and Careers

I think really it is just something you will have to work on. I don't think there is anything mentally "wrong" with you, you just had a late start in learning because you were deaf for the first 7 years of your life- the time most people spend learning these things.

You brought hate, pills and knives,
And this is how the tale begins.
Its your life, exist and wonder why.
When it only fails to work,
It only fails to work sometimes

Youre doing fine IMO. It's not perfect but online typing rarely is.

I'm suprised your written is worse though. Correct me i'm wrong but wouldn't not hearing mean you'd have to turn to text more often?

It could be a good idea to have people put things in quotation or whatever these things are (((()))))) to show what the sound is. Like, Arrogant- (Arroh-ghant).

read. a lot. it helps. one of my friends' brother is deaf, but he wasnt born with his disabilities. his story is very similar to yours. he has trouble with his spelling and sometimes pronnciation. it helps him a lot to read a lot of books at a high level. i figure that when we are weak in one area, eg. hearing, we are often stronger in another to balance it out. alec (friends brother) has an amazing memory so when he sees new ways to spell things it sticks. you might be the same way!

good luck, hope that helped!

Practise, practise, practise and more practise - simple solution
How you practise is another matter - that entirely depends on how you learn. Grammar is just one of those things that is perfectly fine once you get it, but if you don't get it it seems like an unnecessary pain in the ass.

↑ sounds like a good idea. Reading is an easy way to develop your vocabulary, sentence formation, spelling, punctuation, grammar, expression etc. Why not try some good books?

i love reading i was tested on my reading and vocab no prnouceantion or spelling i got up to the level that most 19 year olds have a hard time on
today i had dictation i got 14/30 high score for me
the hard part is i do well in tests and thats all the school cares about they don't care if i go home with a head ache every day from lip reading they don't care if i'm still waiting to get my hearing aid fixed and am relying on my implant only for sound they don't care if i have to copy all my friends notes because i cant write and watch the teacher mouth they don't care if i cant understand my Japanese teacher at all because of her accent. as long as i work 3 times harder than a normal student to make good marks the school could care less about me

Thank you Rith
