Growing up being the only deaf girl in my house was such a rollercoaster. My family didn’t know I was deaf until my third grade teacher pointed out that I couldn’t hear her and thought I was ignoring her. The day my mom took me a place where there was people testing if I was actually deaf the results came out I was fully deaf in my right ear and hard of hearing the left ear. I remembered seeing my mom crying I asked her why she was crying, she said “ I’m so sorry, I didn’t know you were deaf all this time I thought you were ignoring me. I’m sorry I yelled at you. ” I’m little kid at this time so I told her it was okay. The very first time I’ve gotten my hearing aid was such an amazing experience. I remembered they added this gooey stuff in my ear, it was like ear massage the best thing in the world, that gooey stuff was a part to create my hearing aid. After while, I gotten my first hearing aid the experience was unexplainable I heard the radio a lot louder for first time and I heard my mother better. Thanks to audiologists for their incredible help and kindness.
