In the fall of 1995, I was diagnosed with tinnitus and sensory nerve hearing loss.
I had been told by the doctor that my hearing loss had most likely been caused by the seizure medication that I had taken for years as a child because of hydrocephalus, a condition that causes fluid to build up on the brain.
As the months went by, I knew that I had to adjust to living with my hearing loss so I taught myself sign language. I also learned how to read lips by watching people's lip movements and facial expressions when they talked. I still face challenges with communication at times but I know that I can live with this condition.
