Deaf at birth (or should be naturally Deaf when embryo was in making). Cause? Nothing. Either my parents did not do drugs or alcohol during pregnancy (they are damn pure drug free as straight-edge all of their life.) My Deaf brother was born Deaf as well before me. Cause? Same as nothing.

Not sure what caused my deafness. We don't know if it's from birth or what! Grew up HOH with a progressive loss & now am D/deaf. :)

If I had voted in this after I had my coffee I may have noticed it was multiple choice. I clicked late deaf, but would have also picked after illness, not that what I have makes me "sick". But it is a disease....otosclerosis, started when I was 20. 17 years later, and yep I'm still losing it.
