On the Monique Show (@TheMoniqueShow) Rapper Foxy Brown (@FoxyDonDiva) was a guest last night. One of the things she discussed was her sudden hearing loss. From first hand experience, it is one of the most scarest things ever to experience. She spoke about the surgeons that helped her (um can you hook a sister up with at least one), and the progress she’s made in her life.
I know a couple of you may be *side-eyeing* me right now, but let’s keep it real. If for almost 30 years of your life, you had crystal clear hearing…and there was a chance to get some or most of it back, you wouldn’t want it? (Now I’m side-eyeing anyone who’d say no)
I have to admit that as time passes, many things get easier for me living as a deafened adult. I have done things to help me…adjust. I have made D/deaf & HOH friends, who are now family, and I would not change that if I could. But if I had my way, I would be a fully hearin’, American Sign Language signin’, stiletto wearin’ mama.
I wish Foxy the best! (I’m sorry the video is not captioned)
