I just wanted to share a wonderful story. I was in the Registrar's Office trying to get my credits and gen eds out of the way. I was just about to leave, when a woman asked me if I was wearing cochlear implants. I told her yes and she mentioned that her dad had them. He was actually one of the first people implanted in Pittsburgh in the 1980s. She went on to say that she had several hundred batteries designed specifically for complete implant us and she didn't know what to do with them when her dad passed last year. We exchanged information and I went back to the advising office the following day to pick up about 360 batteries, which costs approximately $200. This is fantastic, because my 675 disposable batteries have been expired for 4 years now. I use rechargeable batteries normally, but if for some reason I don't have power or the charger, I use my disposable backups. So nice of her! Humanity is still good everyone! ❤️😊
I am a 20 year old junior at the college of my dreams. I am studying Emergency Medicine and Communication Rhetoric and minoring in the Administration of Justice and National Preparedness and Emergency Management certificate. At some point, I want to go and get my paramedic certification when my health allows. I have several chronic illnesses and this blog and website serves as a place for me to share my journey fighting CRPS and my other conditions. I hope that this blog can also serve as an outlet for raising awareness for rare diseases. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy! Feel free to comment; I'd love to know what you think!
