The Missing Linx2

A few months ago I had what could have been a complete nightmare for me, I lost one of my treasured Linx2 hearing aids. I was distraught, I felt completely unbalanced, unnerved and worse I feared how I would replace the missing aid. Firstly I asked for help in searching for the tiny hearing aid in all the places I'd been along with my parents pulling apart our house as my poor sight is not very helpful when it comes to finding things, especially things so small. I was devastated it couldn't be found and to this date has not…

San Francisco had been on my long list of places to visit and I was lucky enough to go on a girls only adventure with Mum and my younger sister Lily. Going away and out of my comfort zone can be very stressful, whether I am alone, with Unis or with others. To deal with the anxiety I often feel I use my travel experiences as a mission to find who and what is accessible in my world.   Whilst I’m concentrating on the good, bad and acceptable it gives me something to think about rather than feel anxious.

I didn't like to think too far ahead, however I was determined to make something of my life. Thanks to amazing support at Primary School and later at College I made it through my A levels and to University. Sadly University turned out to be very similar to senior school - something of a non event, big promises of support but failure to follow through. Again let down by a system that failed in their duty of care, failed to provide accessibility or inclusion and enough really is enough. Enough fighting, of feeling anxious, misunderstood, unimportant time to move on…

Over the years I have become more and more anxious in and around London. I live about 40 minutes away from the city in a small town. Not a lot goes on in the town I live in.  Growing up I loved visits to London it really is fantastic, a City I love. However, as my sight progressively got worse, I became more stressed in crowded areas, that horrible feeling of claustrophobia. Moorfield Eye Hospital became the only reason I would go to London, a day at Moorfield Eye Hospital is not a pleasant day out.  At one point I…
