    Almost Deaf...

    I'm mostly deaf in my right ear due to a head injury. My mother warmed up my father for a bad night of fighting right before dinner. I was in the kitchen trying to sneak something to eat because sometimes mom would make a meal and if they fought too long we wouldn't get to eat...

    I'm deaf in my right ear due to a congenital

    reoccurring cholesteatoma. I've been mostly deaf since my second surgery when I was 10. The mastoidectomy caused my doctor to have to reconstruct my ear drum as well, and arm skin doesn't work so well at hearing, haha! The hardest thing about being deaf is that people will talk...

    Yep

    I had a lot of ear infections when little and one of them destroyed my right ear.  The bones (hammer, anvil and stirrup) disintegrated and the ear drum wrapped around what was left.  In the early 80's, they took a piece of bone from my skull and made new ones and skin...

    Mostly Deaf

    I don't know why I'm deaf in that ear, but it was detected when I was about 8. I used to live near some very noisy neighbours, so being able to lie on my left side and get to sleep was a bonus. I can play music by ear, and apparently I have a nice gentle touch, so it's not all...
