Deafness vs Deafhood


The hearing people never hear of word "Deafhood" mean. The hearing people said Deafhood is not a word in the dictionary. I told them go to wikipedia or go deafhood website. Why I should be consider to be a Deafhood? It mean do not want to fixed or cure by hearing aids or cochlear implants. The hearing aids and cochlear implants are not cure for deafness. It just a tool to hear a sound. The Deafhood made it up by Deaf Culture because refused accept "Deafness or hearing impaired". I agree with hearing people said Deafhood and Deaf Culture are such like Luddite. I don't mean to insult. It's a fact!

Am I happy being DEAF without cochlear implant???

Am I happy being a deafblind?

Am I happy being Deaf-muted?

None of them The Deafhood and Deaf culture are NON-CI user or non Hearing aids user. They are misinformation about CI's success rate. I went to youtube and look around for deaf babies with cochlear implants and saw Deaf people's comments made threat and attack on parents over cochlear implants deaf babies and children. It made me pissed off and clicked dislike on their comments. It's very criticize and hateful of CI. They are so IDIOT, VERY NARROW-MINDED and BLIND!!! That is so sad of them for being sad soundless and doubt about technology for hearing loss. I disagree about Cochlear implant is EVIL! The CI do not eliminated the deaf's right!

I found many word of Vs between.

Deafhood Vs Deafness

Deafhood Foundation Vs Starkey Hearing Foundation

Deafhood Vs Audism

Pro-ASL Vs Pro-CI

Oralism vs Maunalism

Deafness Vs Blindness

Hearing Loss Foundation Vs Deaf Culture Foundation

Cochlear implant Foundation Vs Deafhood Foundation

Deaf School Vs Mainstreaming

Deafhood want to race with other Audism, CI, deafness for victory.


ASL Vs Spoken Language as an Oral

I don't like to be war in both side. Why is Deaf culture want to be a political?? I don't think Cochlear implant should be political like anti-CI or Anti-SEE or Anti-ASL or Anti-Deafism or Anti-Audism. How about the Anti-Deafblindess or Blindhood vs Blindness? What is the wrong with Deaf people in Deafhood?

Why I should consider to be Blindhood or Deafblindhood?? Am I happy to be deafblind without sight and hear? No. I want to be value my sight and need to be fix. It's my choice to be fix and wait for technology in the process. Go ahead I wanted to get CI to Hear Now then retina surgery later. That is my point about Deafhood between Deafness. I personal don't care about history and non technology in the past. We are in 21 century in the present time. The deaf culture can't change hearing people's choice for deaf children to have cochlear implants. The parents have right to choice for deaf children. How about Blind culture's not allow blind children to have a glasses or surgery to see from the dark? Let blinds children to stay be BLIND. That is not make any sense to me. It's my point!

Deaf culture versus the cochlear implant

Deaf Culture Vensus Cochlear Implant

Thar is the best article.  It is so true about Deaf culture is against Cochlear implants for babies without learn ASL or sign languages.   To be honest,. I'm not against CI on babies.  I am support parent's rights to make option for deaf babies.  If I have a deaf ushers syndrome child like me.  I would get my child to get CI early before toddler.  I don't want to deal with my past without Cochlear implant.  I don't trust Deaf school and Deaf teachers at all.  I want to do best for my child with Cochlear implant and attend to mainstream school.  Of course I can teach my child to learn sign language early.  I don't care if Deaf militants call me bad mother.  I could give them a middle fingers off at them and go away.  I can tell them the baby isn't your baby and none of your business.  I was survived in isolate from hearing society without communication. I am not fluent of speak languages.  It was not my faulted.  I don't want to see Deaf kids bullying at my child at Deaf school.  I will not let send my child to the dorm.  Fyi, my son is hearing.  If I have second child is deaf like me and will get CI for baby so early.    Please read the article link.

Deaf School, Dorm, children abusive in my experience & eyenwitness

I have to tell the truth about the nightmare at Deaf School and dorm that where I went.  The most Deaf Schools are wicked.   Do you know why?   I was victim of bullying cruel Deaf kids, physical abuse, emotional abuse, molesting,  and school. System error over ISTEP.  There is many liberal teachers, staffs and supervisors.   I'm not saying all Deaf are against Jesus and God.  Some Deaf Christian do believe in Jesus.  My point about Deaf Pride, Deaf LGBT who hate God.   I was witness of students were victims by bullying, sexual assault, rape, physical abuse, emotional abuse, school system error.   That is the worst traumatic in children live in dorm without parents there for their children.   The most parents weren't happy with Deaf school and dorm and pulled their children out of Deaf school for the reasons.   My friends told me the same thing about ISD.   I knew my old teachers, staffs, and principal are gay and lesbian,  I lived sin in sodomy Deaf school.  My old classmates were molested on me.    The girls love to play pinch on girls's butts.   My LGBT asked me personal if I was bisexual.  They influenced me to be bisexual.     They offended me about closed mind about sex.   I felt into sin life and deep depression.   My old classmates and schoolmates stole my own clothes, stuff, and money.   The reason why is my mom and I moved to Indy to stay away from live in the wicked dorm.   I lost my respect for Class of 2000 sponsor stole my $894 dollars for senior trip to California.  I supposed to go to Cailfornia for senior trip but I can't go because I got suspect from ISD for fought with girl at dorm.    She accused on me for push her Mountain Dew can spilled.  I told her I'm sorry it was accident and can't see.   She pushed on me.    I pushed her back and punch into her face.  That is why my Class of 2000 sponsor used my money to go California without me.   I found it out about ISD corrupted on school system error. I supposed to get a high school diploma but the lesbian principal gave me High School certificated due to ISTEP failed 5 times.   My teachers asked me to stay at high school for 5 years to be pass the ISTEP.   I denied their request.  I wanted to get out of world for new life.

Deaf school are broke God's law.      They committed a crime:

School system corrupted
Children molesting
Children abuse
Languages abuse
Fake report
Fake accusing

I had attempt suicide, emotional abuse, bisexual, broke virgin, tried drugs, vandalism.   I asked god forgive me being sin life in Deaf World.   I broke the curse and be rebirth to Jesus.

Stem Cell Pioneers Creating Retinal Patch to Restore Vision

April 5, 2013 – A research team headed by Dr. David Gamm of the University of Wisconsin-Madison is about to take a big step forward in developing a vision-restoring, stem-cell-based therapy for people with advanced retinal diseases. With $900,000 in funding from the Foundation’s Translational Research Acceleration Program (TRAP), the team is constructing a two-layered patch of cells to replace retinal tissue lost from conditions like retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration. 

The patch, Dr. Gamm believes, is the best strategy for reconstructing the retina when multiple cell types have succumbed to disease. Building on his previous TRAP-funded research, he is confident that this approach will get him closer to a clinical trial for a human therapy.

“We started our first TRAP grant in 2008 just after induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) — stem cells derived from skin or blood — were first created,” Dr. Gamm explains. “At the time, no one had even shown that iPSCs could be made into retinal cells. We and others have succeeded in doing that. The continuing challenge has been to get the transplanted cells to survive the hostile conditions of the diseased retina, arrange themselves appropriately and make the necessary connections to restore vision. I believe we have the right plan to make tremendous progress toward that goal.” 

Dr. Gamm’s collaborators — Drs. Dennis Clegg, of the University of California, Santa Barbara; James Thomson, of the Morgridge Institute for Research; and Derek Hei, of the University of Wisconsin-Madison — will create a patch consisting of two layers of stem cells. One layer will serve as the precursors to vision-enabling rods and cones, or photoreceptors; once transplanted, they will mature into photoreceptors. The other layer will consist of mature retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells, which provide waste disposal and nutrition for photoreceptors. A thin plastic film developed by Dr. Clegg’s group will serve as a structural backbone for the patch. A biodegradable gel will protect the cells and hold the layers together.  

“In many retinal diseases, both RPE and photoreceptors are lost and need to be replaced,” says Dr. Gamm. “We don’t want to transplant an unstructured mix of RPE and photoreceptors, because they aren’t likely to integrate and function properly, especially in a retina that’s suffered significant degeneration. Our patch — a pre-formed structure that better resembles a natural retina — should give the cells a much better chance of surviving and providing vision.” 

Dr. Gamm’s group is also using funds from the Foundation grant to create lines of iPSCs from “super donors,” people whose cells and tissues provide an immune match for a significant percentage of the general public. When properly matched with the recipient, the cells are less likely to be rejected. The team’s goal is to have an “off-the-shelf” iPSC inventory that can be used to create patches for virtually any patient, regardless of the disease or immune system profile. To accomplish this important goal, and benefit the largest number of people possible, Dr. Gamm’s group has partnered with the Madison-based company Cellular Dynamics International and the Waisman Biomanufacturing Facility.

While iPSCs can be derived from each patient on a case-by-case basis, Dr. Gamm says the super-donor solution is technically simpler, less costly and may work just as effectively. His research will help bear out this approach’s feasibility and benefits. 

Dr. Gamm acknowledges that he and his colleagues will learn as much from the research process as its final outcomes. “We’re pushing the envelope by transplanting multiple cells types,” he says. “But along the way, we will answer several important questions: Can we make cells that align correctly with one another? Do they make synapses and hook up to other cells? What is the best way to transplant them, keep them healthy and promote their integration within a diseased retina? It’s not an easy task, but neither was making those first retinal cells from iPSC back in 2008. We reached our goals then, and I am confident we’ll keep moving forward.” 


It sound like I am able to drive.  I always want to have my own car.  I can drive on my own independence from being a passenger.   I can go anywhere with my car whatever I want.     I'm struggling with my retina disease for long times since I was born.   I have a high hope to cure my blindness to SEE like normal.

Listening the music ♪ ♫ ♩ ♬

I'm enjoying to listen the music on my iPod. My husband made a playlists for me to listen with my cochlear implant. I'm learning to listen the music like rhythm and different kind of instrument band. My favorite music is Eneinem, Avril, Jewels, Lady GaGa, Techno, Pink of Floyd, KoRn, Pink, and more. I can't stop listening the music! My dream of my dad's playing on his guitar and singing at band. I'm still have his all old tape cassettes for memories. My mom saved all my dad's tapes for band and W0W0 Radio for me to listen with my CI. I will have my husband to do copy and burn the CD from tape cassettes and allow me to listen my dad's VOICE! I can't wait! I love that facebook's design of Ipod and symbols.

Cochlear Implant Experience Survey

I got survey from AllDeaf site thread title is Cochlear Implant Experience.  I copied and pasted to my blog to answer the question.  

1. When did you have the surgery to get your cochlear implant? June 12, 2009

2. After you were implanted, how long did it take before you were able to see benefit
from the implant? 3 weeks after surgery and activated in July 7, 2009  heard for first time

3. What situations are best for listening with your implant? quiet in environment, can understand the sound in noise environment, music and TV

4. What situations are hardest for you when listening with your implant? in strange or not familiar communication from foreign speak languages, too many people's chattering in same time

5. What complaints do you have about your cochlear implant? None

6. Do you feel like your cochlear implant has lived up to what your audiologist and/or
surgeon told you it would do?  Yes.  They are awesome audiologist and surgeon.  

7. Do you think you do better with the implant as compared to when you had hearing
aids? I'm growing up with hearing aids since I was 2 years old.  I have no long hear any sound from hearing aids benefit.   I was good candiate for cochlear implant when I was 6 years old.  I supposed to get it but I scared of surgeon and hospital.  My dad had to let me grow up to be older make a decide to get CI.   Finally I got CI at age 27 years old.  I'm still wearing hearing aid on my right ear.  I can hear bilateral with CI and HA.
