I'm Val. I lost my hearing due to meningitis a few years ago. I was going through the process for a cochlear implant but I didn't qualify. I got the news on Friday and have been quit upset. I'm starting to have nightmares and full blown panic attacks now.
I am fighting for acceptance. Yesterday, I met with a private tutor. I am starting to learn sign language as a tool to help me communicate. Learning a new language after being sick is hard for me.
I feel like I am more forgetful now and it's harder for me to focus. I feel myself drifting a lot when I should be paying attention. Do any of you guys feel like this?
