Shannon began losing her hearing at age 30. Since then, every day there's a new awkward situation. For the hearing people reading this, imagine not hearing a blow dryer next to your head. If you say "pardon me" using your inside voice, she's not going to hear it. She doesn't hear "s's" very well either. So it's a long day of piecing together quiet-talkers, mumblers and filling in the "s's". Recently Shannon joined the Board of Directors for the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) West Valley Arizona Chapter.
In addition to this blog, she and co-author Riley enjoy writing a collection of stories about this crazy invisible thing called hearing loss.
