    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
