I am 25 and have listened to ridiculously loud music my entire life. Driven on tractors for hours on end, and pretty much spent a quarter of a century abusing my hearing. 2 months ago I heard a very VERY loud pop and my left eardrum hasn’t stopped ringing. I hear a loud consistent ring constantly. If anyone’s has any advice for tinnitus please let me know❤️

Do you ever jus want people to understand how you struggle with life regularly? Do you ever jus want their empathy. Am I the only only one that feels alone being deaf and nobody will understand because they don’t have to face our struggles?

I’m 20 almost 21 and I just found out that I’m slowly loosing my hearing and the worst part is no one knows why the worst part is the pain, vertigo and tinnitus uggh also before this I actually already knew ASL but didn’t know how I would use it and I guess I know now. But also it’s hard bc I haven’t told my friends and family bc I’m scared on how they would respond and knowing them I doubt they would learn ASL bc they were sceptical of me pursuing being a speech pathologist

I fully became deaf about last year. I started losing my hearing when I was 16. I'm 21 now but during that time I learned quite a few signs and learned about the culture but there's no deaf people around my area and it makes me feel so alone. I'm not sure how to feel included when I'm alone.

I'm unsure if this is even the appropriate group for me to join. You see, I am the mother to a 10 year old son who is Deaf. I live in a very small community and have taken an ASL 1 course that I had to drive two hours just to get to twice a week and it was only offered in the winter. Other than that I try to teach myself through the use of apps and websites. Also, my son happily corrects me or helps me when I ask a sign. I guess I should mention that he goes to the specialized school for the Deaf which is 385 miles away from home for him. This is his 4th year there. He comes home every Friday and goes back every Sunday except for holidays and breaks. I've tried everything I can think of to get help to learn more ASL. I've tried for government help (he gets SS), I've tried trough his school, I've tried applying for grants to take more ASL courses through the community college even though it's a bit of a drive, I've tried other schools, and I've tried online, then someone tagged me on something about this app and here I am. I guess I should mention that we're all hearing and I've 4 kids all together, and his stepdad living together. Then there's the bio dad and his gf and their new baby. Out of all of us I'm the one with the best ASL skills and that's not saying much! It just makes me sad that I'm basically the only one in our family who can communicates with him and we can't find help anywhere to learn!!

Friends - my best friend is suffering a drastic and sudden loss of hearing in his right ear accompanied with a constant ringing that has reduced his quality of life considerably. He’s scared and confused. The doctors are lost. Has anyone here suffered something similar?

I’ve been asked few times on trying my cochlear implant and sometimes I give them honest answer that I don’t wear it cause it usually falls off when I don’t wear a hat at work or walking around. I usually wear it when I have headphones to listen to musics or movies on phone or laptop. But times i get annoyed when being asked that in a awkward times plus when I don’t have then on and I tell them that I’m deaf and they don’t usually believe me so that’s why I have to wear it to show proof

Three reason why don’t some deaf people want to date hearing people. 1. Some deaf people don’t want to date hearing people because they don’t want to get judged regardless of their deafness and learning abilities. Some hearing people can refuse to learn sign language for their deaf partners. They think using write down a notes or typing in a notepad app is more easier than learning sign language. 2. Deaf children are more likely to get their language deprived, which is it would impact their education. 3. Some deaf people are more likely to get comfortable dating deaf people because they have a same language or keep their generation of deafness alive. If you interested in a me talk about culture.

Hi everyone. I’ve recently developed slight hearing loss and tinnitus in both ears. Its really impacted my life and my anxiety and depression have become really difficult to manage. Would be great to talk to anyone who has been through or is currently going through the process of adjusting to tinnitus and different hearing

I am a hearing person, but I've always been interested in learning sign language and knowing more about deaf/HOH community. I've been learning sign language since high school through sign club. I know my ABCs but I am still learning more vocabularies. Some deaf individuals can feel like they don't belong in a hearing world, so I want to be a part of this incredible group here so I can learn more about you all and possibly be a good ally. ❤🤟

Hello, I’ve found something I think would be useful for people that are in the UK. If you cannot ring 999 and speak to an operator you can text them but you have to register your uk number. To register you need to text ‘register’ to 999 they will then send you a text which you need to text back which is ‘YES’ then you should receive a last text from them saying that registration is complete. If you register with them and you ever need them you should a text with the service you need for example (police, ambulance, fire service or coast guard) then what the emergency is and where the emergency is but this should be precise including the name of the road and town and if possible more details like house number or near by landmarks or main roads. An example of a good text. ‘Ambulance. Man having a heart attack. Outside nibbles pizza. Glossop road Sheffield S10’. the more information you give them In the first text regarding location the faster the emergency services will be able to send help. IT WONT WORK UNLESS YOU REGISTER! I will leave a link so you can see yourself! https://www.relayuk.bt.com/how-to-use-relay-uk/contact-999-using-relay-uk.html

Felt very discouraged today. We had a class of students come through my work (911 communications center) to show them what we do and kind of explain and interact with them. One of the students was deaf and kind of standing off to the side. So myself, who has been hearing my whole life, (learning the language still only 4 years in) went to talk to him a bit and tested out my sign. This student was just not having it and pretty much told me to F*** off. Just wanted to share... did I do something wrong culturally?

My ci is malfunctioning and well wtf do I do? I am good at reading lips but everyone is wearing masks and no one here knows asl and ngl I'm not really fluent in it I'm deaf but everyone else in my family is hearing and I really dont know anyone else who is deaf. I also know my voice is less clear when my ear is off so until the replacement peice of my ci comes in the mail I'll hear nothing and only know what ppl are saying through writing or reading my roomates lips. I ordered a replacement cord several months ago and it never arrived I ordered it again last week but there are riots in my area which have been messing up the mail system so its random when the spare cords will come in

I get my first hearing aid soon. I had no clue I would be losing my hearing. I mean I had tubes in my ear when I was younger but that pretty common. I’m in my 40s and my family never believes anything I say including about my hearing. They think I’m a hypercondriact. Today we had a family event and I mentioned my hearing aid arriving soon and I was purposely ignored. My wife often forgets I can’t hear in one ear but apologizes. We will be learning ASL together. We figure even I don’t need to use it later, it’s a great skill to have and it’s not very common. When I had my hearing tested, I was only able to hear high pitch noises with my left ear. Now, I don’t seem to even be able to hear the high pitch noises. Is this common? Does this mean I am going to be my losing hearing? I know they say be careful what you wish for, but as much as I am scared about becoming completely deaf, I kind of wish I already was. My mom has this nasty tone where it sounds like she is always yelling at me, people are always mean to me verbally. Maybe it would be better 🤷‍♀️ of course I do know that saying it and living it are very very different. Heck losing my hearing in one ear has been so annoying and often frustrating I can’t even imagine not hearing at all. Anyways, anyone else have this or similar scenario with their hearing? Usually I just do extensive research regarding medical conditions but I’m not sure I even know where to start! I was always told that there was a good chance I may eventually become blind. I can still see- with glasses but nothing Qs ever said about losing my ability to hear.

But does this mean I will become completely deaf at some point? Will I lose hearing in my other ear? I’ve always wanted to learn asl- and I do know a lot of it but should I teach myself to be fluent now? I honestly have no one to talk to about this. So sorry if my questions are very ignorant but this is all very very new to me

Has anyone here with HOH ever been invalidated? 😑 Just curious. I have been partially deaf since I was 7, but it’s not to a degree that I have to wear a hearing aid.
