  1. I personally have not had any issues with the Roger pen or Roger 21. I use them often with no issues.
  2. So far everything is going very well. After 19 years, I just made a job change into a field I am very passionate about. I might be the first deaf Security Officer in SC.

  11. No better time than the present Ivana. You can start learning sign language whenever you want. If you are dealing with a deaf patient which I'm sure you will at some point. Just signing hello, how are you or what is your name will make their eyes light up. Even if it is a few signs, knowing that your doctor has taken the interest and time to learn a few signs to try to communicate would mean the world to that patient.
