Deafness Chronicles is a blog by Brazilian, Paula Pfeifer, who chronicles her hearing loss and how she is in the world of sounds after her cochlear implants.

The blog, In My Head, is about a freelance journalist, mom, voracious reader, pop culture and sugar junkie who happens to be deaf. The author has a cochlear implant, reads lips, speaks, types fast, and has a lot to say. Living with Hearing Loss is a blog for those with hearing loss. I don’t want my hearing loss to define me, but I find that being open about it can help relieve the pressure of always having to hear everything perfectly.
