For Walk my world #5 we had to talk about a turning point in our lives. I had one major turning point in my life. It happened when i was in 5th/6th grde. I was diagnosed as being hard of hearing and i had to get hearing aids. I had no idea what to expect, i just knew that i had not been able to hear the TV or the teacher talking. I first got my hearing aids and I kept forgetting to wear them which does not do them any good if they are not in my ears. I did not feel embarrassed about my disability but i was not too comfortable about it either. Over time i realized that i was special and that i just needed a little extra help becuase of my disability but i do not let it stop me from doing anything i put my mind to.
