Anonymous: I recently got an ear infection and it hurt like hell, but once it healed my hearing in my right ear has changed a bit not a bunch but I notice it and I am kind of worried and want to go to the doctor to check it out but I don't have insurance. Can you lose hearing through ear infections?

If the ear infection damaged your ear drum, then yes, scar tissue on your ear drum can affect your hearing. However, the best way to find out if you have hearing loss is by seeing a doctor, and if you don’t have insurance, maybe there is a health department near you? They offer medical services at greatly reduced prices, so maybe you could try that. I hope your hearing isn’t permanently affected, or that you’re able to find out if it is and act on it! Let me know what happens :)

carohoku: "too smart to be deaf" oh yeah I got that all the time. Some were super impressed by my grasp on english, my ability to swim, etc. as if it never occurred to them that we deafies can be smart, athletic, good looking, strong, etc etc. -_-'

Exactly! Together we shall kick their offensive stereotypes into the dirt, because they are stupid and inaccurate, and can be very hurtful.

I had a double viral ear infection. Woke up one & the world was silent. Drs said it was inner ear. it ate at the nerves in my ears. Now every time I get an ear infection I lose more hearing. Go get them checked out because it can get pretty bad

Here you go anon, another way an ear infection could mess up your hearing. Try your best to get it checked out if you can!

I was my own Wonder Woman crush Wednesday a while back for my Instagram and I wanted to share my very inaccurate (and short haired) version of the lovely Diana, and I thought “what about submitting it to someone on tumblr, that’s an idea” so here I am xD 
(You don’t have to post this, I was just sharing)

"Too smart to be deaf" 
I graduated STAR student and valedictorian of my high school class. At what point did people start believing that deaf/HoH people aren’t intelligent? To the ignorant fuckmuffins who believe that, I have one thing to say to you: Suck it, bitches, I got a goddamn trophy and I wear hearing devices.

This week I am going to make a series of posts calling out deaf stereotypes on their inaccuracy, offensiveness, and stupidity. 
Day 1: Too pretty to be deaf 

Please feel free to participate in this with me, I’d love to see everyone on here embrace their d/Deafness. Coming up tomorrow: “too smart to be deaf” :)
