    It went well except for the fact that my mother wanted to come and she sat next to me the whole time looking miserable and wouldn't talk to anyone unless they tapped her on the should even then she said "I'm not part of this. I just came here for my daughter she then preceded to yell at me for...

    I feel like this video may be relatable for some and educational for others so i'll leave it here.

    I usually don't like the "don't say this to *insert*" kinda videos but I feel like this one is pretty spot on and addresses a lot of things and questions people say/ask to those with hearing loss and deafness. I find it relatable and thought some others would. I also thought this might also be...

    First deaf community meet. what should i expect?

    Tonight I'm going to my first deaf community meet. I'm super nervous. I'm HoH but my family is hearing so I never really have been around many hard of hearing or Deaf individuals other than my teachers at school. It's at a book store which is my comfort zone so hopefully I won't freak out too...

    Is there anyone here who also has chronic pain, ear infections, and or sinusitis?

    The foam ear plugs I only use when around loud noises, not because of the noise but because the sound vibrations. I mean my last ENT was also worries about the loud noise causing more damage to my ears but really I don't hear the music that much, just the vibrations which hurt if they are too...

    Is there anyone here who also has chronic pain, ear infections, and or sinusitis?

    It's not made up. It's just a broad term. Chronic ear disease basically covers most chronic conditions related to ears or even your sinuses. You can be deaf/hoh and not have chronic ear disease or you can be hearing and have chronic ear disease. It's just basically having physical ear problems...

    Is there anyone here who also has chronic pain, ear infections, and or sinusitis?

    I am sensitive to the vibrations as well. By foam earplugs I mean the type that blocks noise. My ENT has me being them everywhere bc I'm so super bad when it comes to even like vibrations from like the car and it can be super painful. I've had tinnitus since my right side eardrum reconstruction...

    Is there anyone here who also has chronic pain, ear infections, and or sinusitis?

    I had never heard of it either until I was 18 and my ENT said I had it after looking at my history. I can link you to a site that will explain it. It's actually from what I understand a broad term and it has it's own spectrum which does include does with chronic infections and such relates to...

    Is there anyone here who also has chronic pain, ear infections, and or sinusitis?

    I have to avoid water as well! My ENT told me the same thing. He said in general that ear plugs are not good to use because a little water still get in and the little water that does get in cannot get back out so it ends up in your ear one way or another. I also was advised to use Vaseline with...

    The cutest smile ever

    Aww they're all so cute. I've never seen a Faust terrier before he/she is so gorgeous. That face! That's awesome. Ball Pythons are so neat and I'm a sucker for the baby ones. There's a pond behind my house so we get a lot of different snakes but lately we've seen a lot of baby ringneck's so I...

    The cutest smile ever

    Awesome. What kind of dogs and what kind of snake? My dad hates snakes so I was never allowed to have one, but we had a neighbor who was a snake collector so my friends and I would go hangout at his house and we would get to hold and feed them, though my parents found out he was letting us...

    "i'm a little bit deaf"....

    I think I sort of understand what he's trying to say. In my experience people tend to think you're either hearing or completely deaf. I have come across many people who have never met or had to work with someone with hearing loss and can be ignorant to it since the only thing they do know is...

    Is there anyone here who also has chronic pain, ear infections, and or sinusitis?

    I do see a specialist. I have gone through many surgeries on both my ears and sinuses since I was a toddler. My last two were to actually reconstruct my eardrums. By the age of 18 I had huge gapping holes in both ears which caused me to have a severe infection that took about half a year to...

    The cutest smile ever

    I have two dogs and a cat. I did have another cat who was actually in the same litter as the one I currently have, but sadly she passed a way at barely 4 months old. In general I grew up with a lot of different animals as a child. The most animals we had all at once was 5 dogs, 2 ferrets, 3...

    The cutest smile ever

    Aww. Is that her in your account pic? I have a dog of my own who has a bit of an underbite (not as bad as the cutie I dogsit for that's in the pic) and for some reason it fits him so well.

    The cutest smile ever

    Haha. I mean I have animals of my own, but I also petsit and I have tons of pictures of animals I get to take care of and play with and I don't want people thinking I have 1,000+ animals in my house.

    The cutest smile ever

    So this isn't my dog. This is a dog my best friend and I baby sit for. His name is Saki he's a total sweetheart. People automatically look at him and assume he's mean because of his face, but actually he just has a serious case of overbite(it does not harm him or affect him physically) when he...

    Is there anyone here who also has chronic pain, ear infections, and or sinusitis?

    So I'm HoH and I grew up thinking it was normal to have what my ENT calls chronic ear disease, but I learned that not every deaf/HoH person has it and not every person with chronic ear disease is deaf/HoH. I was wondering if anyone else was dealing with both and how they handle it and if there's...
