TB & Me: "I am living proof that TB can be beaten"

In 2001 I was diagnosed with TB. I remember having symptoms of TB; coughing for more than two weeks, in my case I was coughing up blood, loss of appetite, loss of weight, lot of sweating at night. I remember one morning I woke up wet from the sweat: it was as if somebody had poured a bucket of water over me. 
 
I visited the clinic, the doctors ran some tests. I was told to go back for the results after two weeks. I went back and got the positive results for TB.
 

Hearing again

My cochlear implant switch on was on the 20th of March, it was a very emotional day!

My audiologist was telling me exactly what she was doing, 1st it was small soft sounds which I heard clearly, then it was time for the big moment. 1st time hearing her, and her voice was clear – mental note; never really trust anything you read on goggle. Of course I did my own research before the switch on.

Hearing my mom speak for the 1st time in 5 years brought tears to my eyes, tears of joy :)
