"Being deaf is the worst thing in my life".
"Being deaf is boring".
"Being deaf is such bad luck".
And the one that got me the most:
"I wish I could die and then be born again without being deaf".
I am struggling with finding the right words to respond to these kind of statements. I want her to know that I understand how she feels and that it is okay for her to feel that way. But I also want her to know that I love her exactly the way she is and that I think we are lucky and FAR from boring ;-)
How can I as her mother help her through this? I am struggling...
