TINNITUS with a Cochlear Implant???!!!!?!?!?!?!?!??!?

Hi there,

It's been a while .... I know. I had a stressful week. I feel bit drained...

Nanowrimo took away my power and other things too. I will not finish nanowrimo in time.. I am stuck at 20,000 words and it's not possible for me to catch up to finish before December... I had to many days in between where I didn't write. I will continue on my novel but in my own pace and when all this is over I will continue to write. I have to many other projects where I'm working on at the same time, so that it's just too much.... and nanowrimo... well I KNOW I CAN write a book in a month. I have proved it 3x and this year it's just not the right time. I am working, I have family and other things that it's impossible.

Isn't it a bit unusual to have tinnitus after a cochlear implant? I've heard different stories so far on tinnitus after a CI surgery. Some day gets louder others say it disappears. Mine did disappear but it did come back.. it's not always there but sometimes it is... as this morning...

Here's a poetry video from my book. I thought to record it as it was right for the moment. That is how a sleepless night looks like.. sometimes.

What do you think? Isn't that a bit strange? Does anyone else has that "problem"? Feel free to share or discuss with me.

Thanks for reading!

Remember this?? When I passed out?

Do you remember this video?? I remember this so vividly ... I spent the afternoon updating links on my youtube videos. I added on two videos subtitles and posted a new one too. I'll write about it tomorrow or later. Than I came across this video again. I want to put this weekend closed-captions on that video here. It will take me some time as I'm bit exhausted right now from spending a few hours in front of my laptop, fixing this and that.

I remember this video. A few hours,.. I think one or two hours afterward this video was recorded I passed out and hit my head so badly first on the wall..... and then on the floor a second time .... (O_o) It hurt really BAD!! I was too foolish and didn't go to hospital. I knew I had a concussion but I was so sock of hospitals the few days before that.. that I didn't not go and stayed at home... in bed.

Right now everything is fine, I have my cochlear implant and hear great though that was really a challenging time. Next time (God I hope it does not happen again)... but next time if sth like this happens again I will immediately go to hospital. This is not something to underestimate!!!!

Thanks for reading!

Many books about cochlear implants

I have so many books about cochlear implant stories that I still haven not yet finished reading.... One of my friends who borrowed me one of her books was right when she said, most people do not want to read those books once their surgery passed by successfully. Why because it stirs up all those emotions once again.. It is a bit sad because I feel the same way, but I will read them. I have started one today and will continue reading slowly. It will take me some time as I am doing nanowrimo this year too, and many other things too but I get slightly overwhelmed by all the "tasks". 

It makes me wonder how other people think about that, in relation to my poetry book "Can You Hear My Poems". Do they think the same way? Do they get tired of reading those kind of books, just because all's over and they do not want to deal with all this all over again?

Hmmm..... I wonder.

NANOWRIMO started .. (O_o)?

Yes it officially started... now there turning back. Everyone knows that I signed up for nanowrimo and they will track my progress.

Many things went wrong in the past few hours before the official start. I lost my outline that I made a few days ago, but luckily I used a mind map to make an outline of the story and the main points, the characters, scenes, anything relevant. I get too distracted on social sites, I have to reduce that. Although I managed my word count for the first day I am over 2,222 words. :) 

It was difficult to start but later it got easier. It's a lot easier when you know where your story will go. I even wrote poems inside. Yeah you know I cannot write no poetry in November, that's impossible and that would drive me crazy. I feel tempted to share the first thousand words but um... later perhaps ok? Or I'll feel jinxed and not write anymore .. When I am done I will share some parts. I have though some new poetry on my Facebook page.

Go to my Facebook page for more poems

I am not sure how often I will write here, probably 1-2 a week but not more. I'll need all words for my book. I wish I could just copy paste all from my blog to put into my story but that's impossible ... Need to write some more, to be a bit ahead of my word count just in case to be prepared for the upcoming days. 

Thank you for reading,
