The Invisible Disability and Me, The Book

My apologies for not updating my site in recent months, I have been busy working on The Invisible Disability And Me, the book and now, finally, it is ready!

I have published The Invisible Disability And Me as a self help guide for those suffering with any form of hearing loss, whether mild, severe or profound as well as those inflicted with Tinnitus or considering a Cochlear Implant. The aim of the book is to empower, educate and help the hard of hearing deal with their everyday lives. If it can help improve just one person’s outlook on life, then I consider it a job well done.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me along the way, it has truly been a labour of love but I am incredibly proud to announce that the Kindle AND Paperback versions are NOW AVAILABLE TO BUY!!!

The Kindle edition is available from Amazon for £1.99 with ALL proceeds being donated to Hearing Link UK in recognition of the fantastic support and advice they provided to me and my family, as well as the work they do to help countless others.

If you would like to purchase the Kindle edition, please click here;

Rehabilitation

As I write this I am currently poorly with the flu. People (i.e. doctors, audiologists and other CI users) don’t tell you how frustrating this is as a CI user, it is frustrating because I cannot blow my nose. Yes, that’s right, I cannot blow my nose!! This is because the action of blowing your nose puts pressure on your eardrum and can create a little vacuum and potentially cause the electrodes to shift position. When you have full blown flu this is not ideal! I think I managed one hour of sleep as I was so paranoid I might stop breathing while asleep. *sigh* Continue reading “Rehabilitation”
