My hearing loss was diagnosed when I was nineteen, and has progressively deteriorated to the point of profound deafness. I wear currently two powerful digital hearing aids and lip read (speech read) a good share of the time. For more information about lip reading, see my lip reading page. The main focus of this blog is hearing loss, but since I am more than just a pair of ears it’s also about my life.
I am scheduled to get a cochlear implant on December ninth, 2011. My activation date is set for December fifteenth.
