There's a couple of health issues I've had all of my life.
I was born with Turner Syndrome.
Secondly, I have hearing loss in both ears, which is in large part due to the Turner Syndrome.
I made yet another trip to the doctor this morning for my ears. It's an ongoing issue with these ears of mine. I have a hearing aid for my right ear. Anyway, my left ear has been giving me some issues for the last couple of months, it's been an on and off again thing. But the left ear is a mess. We've been keeping an eye on it and knew eventually it was going to need some surgical work. Well, it looks like surgery will be in my very near future here soon. I'm on medicine right now to get the ear under control and then have a follow-up in March to discuss surgery and proceed.
In life, it's easy to to define ourselves by our circumstances. But what life has given me, I've chosen to embrace it. Maybe one day God might open the doors for me to work with the hearing impaired, who the heck knows.
Trust me, there are moments where it sucks and I sit in my self-pity, but you can always look around and see people who have it way worse. And I say I'd do all this 100x over if this is all I have to deal with.
