— doctor upset about her child’s deafness

A doctor gave birth. A year later she realized
that her child is deaf. She was very upset
about it – not about the child’s deafness,
but that as a doctor she said she could have
caught it immediately after birth instead of
one year. DeafDigest editor knows the doctor
but refrained from asking her – did the baby
go through a hearing screening exam?


— finally using an interpreter

a deaf student in a college finally began to use an
interpreter in her classes. Previously she was watching
captions on Zoom. She stopped using Zoom, exhausted from
watching it all day. This is called Zoom Fatigue and
she had enough of it!
