Many of you are well aware I am deaf so unable to use a phone, this itself can be very frustrating at times, like the fact I can’t ring my boys up and say “Hiya mate”, today that all changed!
What..?? Do my ears work ok now?!
NO>. but as you know with a PC you can use messenger…many of you use it yet do you take the level of contact you have for granted?
I just got off msn where I was talking to my eldest, he is 14 now, I have never been able to have a conversation with my sons without them actually being here, or me there.
But wow…. what a beautiful thing, being able to message him and say…
“Hiya mate, good day at school? Is all ok, your brother ok?”
“Yeah dad, you ok? Can I stay at a mates on Saturday?”…. “yeah course you can son”.
I KNOW you all take it for granted, just as all do with many things.
This was a great heart warming moment for me, I also look forward to “talking” with my youngest too, who is 12.
I always said this was like a phone to me and that’s ONE reason I use forums alot.
But my sons never had a PC at home so this is great.
I love it, just the fact I can say hi… to many of you it’s nothing special.
To me…it’s a life changing thing.
