Bumblebee

17 years ago today, my world was rocked when we leaned about my CAPD, hyperacusis, and tinnitus. 

It seems so long ago. Eons ago. Yet, the day and the subsequent fight to figure out who I was amidst the labels given to me that day is still so fresh in my mind.

17 years ago, I was a happy 10 year old. I lost some spark that day, but today am a strong bumblebee - flying against the odds.

Not much to say, it's odd to look back on this day, now, as a thriving adult. Yet, I need to mark it, as it is such a crucial part of who I am today.
Other CAPD reflections:
12 Years - which also means it's been 5 years since I graduated college!?

And! Come link up and join the Good.Random.Fun. each Monday, right here!

That's a lot to process for a child. I'm so glad you had support while trying to figure out how these things are a part of you but not who you are.

I think it's great that you took your challenges head on. Many would have used that as an excuse to not continue on with college & your chosen career. I think you have done fantastic at overcoming your hurdles!!

Thriving - I'll say. And throwing your heart and life into helping other youngsters do the same! I genuinely feel blessed to know you!

Good on you! You've come a long way, my friend, and you do wonderful work with the children ---probably in part due to all that you'd gone through. You seem to have a good grasp and understanding of how children learn and making it fun for them.
