When Pain Isn’t Normal — And Doctors Don’t Listen.
Because I was Deaf, I never really saw a doctor on my own. I didn’t get the benefit of interpreters at my appointments until I grew up, got married, and moved away. I always thought the pain that I experienced every day, and particularly around my period, was normal — because I was told that was the case.
