Ataxia Support

I love Ataxia

My new neighbour tried to talk to me in sign language because he assumed I was deaf!

Oh, my gosh! I thought my experience was bad!

:hushed: Really, he thought you were deaf. Because of the various difficulties many of us have with Speech, it’s not totally unreasonable for this assumption to be made. I hope you were able to put him right.

You’re right I should have told him but I was a total coward and have avoided him like the plague ever since! Sorry. :disappointed_relieved:

:slightly_smiling_face: Don’t feel bad about it Anna. I hope you didn’t think I was referring to giving him a full run down about Ataxia. There’s always a time and place for that sort of thing, and it’s never when you’re in an embarrassing situation. I just meant that hopefully you were able to reassure him that you weren’t actually deaf, but instead had speech difficulties :slightly_smiling_face:
