OPENING UP ABOUT MY DEAF BROTHER

    Trent has chosen to keep his life more private. But today he opens up about his experience being hard of hearing and getting the cochlear implant. We were surprised to find out that once you get the cochlear implant it can take months and sometimes years to learn how to hear! But it is definitely worth the hard work if you want to do it. Trent loves his cochlear implants and this is his story! :) From now on I will make sure all of my videos have closed captions. It might take 24 hours or so to process after I upload, but I assure you that I am paying to have all of my videos captioned properly from now on. Thanks for watching!

    I can't even explain how appreciative i am that you brought attention to the captions and also talking to trent about how rude people are with hard of hearing i lost my hearing in my left ear about 10 months ago its very frustrating and sadly can't afford a hearing aid cause insurance are trash and dont cover it since im not 18 anymore 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ but you bringing up the captions helps so much i cant really understand without them hopefully other youtubers realize its actually a problem 💕💕💕💕💕💕

    I am deaf! Both ears and I wear being aids. It’s true, enunciate instead of being louder... it helps. I guess most of us do read lips 😫 thanks for the closed caption now 👏🏿

    I never watch your video or I have no clue who you are. Sorry about that. I just clicked on this video. You seem an amazing person. So I dont relate with your brother but I do have a special need aunt who can’t talk at all. When she was little she was born without a thyroid and that made her do everything slow and when she grow up she can’t like think and talk at the same time. When she goes out she tries to talk but people are mean as usual but nothing can stop her. She can draw so amazing and that’s how she communicates with my family. I know what bullying is. I was bullies all my life. Coming from a different country people do that. What I was trying to say I am a huge Christian person who believes in the Lord. I have no clue if you are or not don’t care what you are but one thing I have learned from being a Christian that no one is perfect and if you have sin you can pick the rock and throw it to the person if you have sin then look up to the Lord. He is a human being who it takes time to think and talk and listen. We are all different and that’s what it makes us special. Don’t know if you will answer me or not but I have something like what you are going through in your family.

    Thank you for telling your brothers story. My mom struggles with bad hearing, Tinitus and Meniége desease. I do understand her, but hearing the story about your brother and how he sometimes got treated by people, is something that needs to be focused on. People need to have patience and respect that everyone's not perfect. It's insane to think that just because your hearing is bad, people walk away.. I'm really happy to see that your brother is doing so well and also have an instrument to improve their life. Thank you both for telling this story!!
