As most of you are aware by now, I LOVE to travel and I have blogged about my top tips and advice on several occasions. Continue reading “Inside A Cochlear Implant User’s Hand Luggage”
It’s been quite a while since I last wrote a blog for the site; if you haven’t heard – I was busy writing a book!
I’ve been pondering, deliberating and umm-ing and ahh-ing about what to write about next considering I covered a lot of topics in both this blog and the book and then up popped a notification from CarlVersusLife to let me know I have been nominated for another award; the Blogger Recognition Award. It reminded me that I hadn’t blogged about the Versatile Blogger Award I received back in December (sorry!) so I thought I would combine the two into one big self-indulgent award post – Enjoy!

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;
The paperback edition is also now available to buy from Amazon and is priced at £4.99, again, ALL proceeds will be donated to Hearing Link.

So, what are you waiting for? BUY, BUY, BUY!!
Happy New Year to all of you – I hope you all had a wonderful festive season and are looking forward to the new opportunities 2017 has to offer.
Sorry for not updating the blog for a while, I’ve been a bit busy with Christmas, illness and the book.
Speaking of the book, I wanted to give you all a little update. The manuscript is now with the publishers and we are awaiting their final comments and potentially a few amendments to the formatting etc.
Once that has been completed, they will give me a choice of a few pricing structures that would be suitable for the book. All profits made from the sale of the book (hopefully a lot!) will be donated to Hearing Link UK.
Following the release of the eBook, I will be purchasing 100 paperback copies to send to Cochlear Implant centres in the UK, hearing loss charities, support groups and those who backed our Kickstarter campaign.
You will also be able to purchase paperback copies but these will be via a print on demand service separate to the eBook. I’m not 100% certain on the protocol for this, it may well be that you have to order them through me and I’ll send them on once received – once I have more information on this I will update you all.
Finally, I just want to extend my deepest gratitude to all of our followers, readers and backers for all of your support, encouragement and help in getting The Invisible Disability And Me eBook thus far.
Lots of love,
As some of our avid readers (and social media followers) may be aware, we are in the process of writing our first eBook, aptly named “The Invisible Disability And Me”.
The book covers topics such as tinnitus, hearing loss in the workplace, travel and cochlear implants, offering tips and hints on how to cope with hearing loss on a daily basis. I write about my own personal story, which many of you are already familiar with, and I also share advice that I have learnt along the way.

As I’m sure most of you will be aware by now, I recently came back from a wonderful trip to beautiful Italy and whilst I adored the culture, food and plentiful Prosecco, I was left disappointed by the audio guide facilities or lack thereof for the hard of hearing/deaf.

As Spring finally seems to have sprung thoughts obviously turn to the warmer months and holidays abroad. For the deaf/hearing impaired this can bring a whole host of obstacles their way and hamper their ability to really relax and enjoy those cocktails on the beach. .

Last week brought a new first for me; the first time I have flown with my implant!!
I was a bit nervous about this, but was pleased that we had a short-haul flight before our rather hectic honeymoon travelling. I researched A LOT and found quite a fair bit of conflicting advice. Some sources stated that a CI user should not go through the metal detectors at the airport as there is risk of the processor being scrambled so you should opt for a full body pat down whereas some sources said it was absolutely fine to go through the detectors but that you may hear a buzzing noise and you will set off the detector.
