Meeting my sister in law today for the first time

She’s visiting from out of town. I’m nervous because she is deaf and I’m afraid I won’t understand her speech. My husband says she’s difficult to understand.

You can always communicate via texting if you can’t understand each other.

There are a lot of deaf people where I live. I had to learn for when I worked customer service.

There was a mix up and we ended up not getting to see her today. Maybe some other time while she’s here. Thanks for the tips :).

I go mute at times and I normally just type out what I want to say on my phone in those times.

Could do that to communicate a little better.
