This week I have not been very productive, I fear it, but I have a good reason!
At the moment, my little brother Søren is at home for at least 2 weeks. He’s my half-brother but it makes no difference to me. He is 10 years old and it is so good to see him! Dad had Søren in one of his essays to rebuild his life, but there was a big argument with his mom. She left when he was 4 years old and since then I’ve only seen him 3 or 4 times. You will understand that in these conditions I take advantage of my little devil and that my blog is not my priority! ^^ I’m not giving it up but I’m probably going to settle for one article a week rather than two until now.
For 3 months, with all these masks in the street, I have the impression of living in an episode of Naruto. Yes, you should be happy if you are a manga fan, but personally I find it oppressive! Ok it’s hard for everyone to live, I understand that it’s complicated for everyone, but imagine that when you leave your house, you no longer hear any sound, a deafening silence?
When I leave my house, I can no longer communicate with anyone. Everyone is masked, so I can no longer read the lips of my interlocutors. And I can no longer speak sign language. Indeed, many signs are based on facial expressions. It’s a bit like if you had to start talking overnight without using vowels. Fortunately for me, I am lucky to be with my family at home, but I have a thought for all deaf people who must or must have been confined alone at home.
To receive the information, I am happy to see that the newspapers have started to offer interpreters more often. However, they are often very small in the corner of the picture and it is not always very easy to understand them even when you have good eyesight. To this must be added that many deaf people suffer from Usher syndrome which, in addition to giving profound deafness, causes a progressive loss of visual acquittal going as far as blindness.
I can only imagine that, I have my family to keep me up to date but to know that a crisis of such magnitude is going on and not being able to get information properly, all this added to the feeling of ‘isolation…
Some of us are going through a very difficult time so if you have a neighbor, a friend or even only a deaf acquaintance, while respecting a safe distance of course, try to communicate with him without your mask to see how he feels right now and if he manages to get well informed. In any case, he will be infinitely grateful.
Either way, whether you are deaf, hard of hearing or hearing, take care of yourself and your loved ones! As for me I say see you soon! 😉
It’s been so long since I’ve written anything to you …
If I have been away for so long, it is for several reasons.
I was asked to marry and I said yes, then I said no … well I ran away but I think the message was understood … Yeah, I know, I’m a complicated girl.
I had already explained it earlier in my blog but last September, I started a year of school in France, everything was going well but after 6 months I had to return to Denmark. My Dad had serious health problems. I don’t want to go into details but I had to take care of him as well as my grandparents who were, you can imagine very worried. Thank goodness, now he’s much better.
“Du er de urokkelige søjler, der får mig til at stå dag efter dag i vanskelige tider, og uden hvilke jeg ikke ville vide, hvem jeg er. Jeg elsker dig så meget!“
Finally, the Corona (why this 🤬 have stolen me my nickname!!! 😡) arrived and I confined myself with my dad and my grandparents and I live a hell. They are so hard to bear! Every day I have to put up with good little cooked meals, get sore zygomatics by dint of laughing at grandpa’s jokes, and worst of all, I have to endure hugs of everyone, but luckily I have a companion who supports me! 😻
Anyway, for me it’s time to go, it’s time to go shopping, but I promise, I won’t leave you as long as the last time. 😁
