My nature about my disability
I was born with normal hearing. When I was premature baby (3 weeks premature), I was weak. One month after my birth, I had pneumonia and got hospitalized for it. There were kids with meningitis in the same hospital. Unfortunately I became a victim of the meningitis virus. I had convulsions later in the day; the nurse told my parents that I had meningitis as well. My parents moved me to a more advanced hospital and thought that I won’t have any post effects from this scary disease. Doctors tried their best and told my parents that I was fine as the strong medicine were working well for me and I did improve my health.
Days, months and years passed. My milestones were delayed, but I was healthy. Later my parents were worried about my limited speech. So I was taken to the hearing specialist for further tastings. They conducted several test and then diagnosed my hearing loss.
My parents were shocked to hear the fact that the strong antibiotics that were given to me to save my life from meningitis virus which suppressed my hearing (auditory nerves), hence I lost my hearing ( 90% in right ear and 80% in left ear) . Thus I became a hearing handicapped person.
My disability has shaken my enter family as I was unable to speak. My journey life as a non-hearing person is very hard from then. Eventhough I attended auditory hearing class to make use of my residual hearing and speak better, I still struggle with my speech and other language. Furthermore, I received a cochlear implant when I was 18 years old (very late). However, today I can hear much better through my implant, but my speech is still unclear for some people. I feel that my disability has crippled me and become a barrier for several potential job opportunities. I love to work on computer and clerical positions as I am a good with computer and have a good typing skill. However, my hearing disability hinder me from getting any office jobs just because of my inability to attend phones clearly.
I hope and pray that my hard work, work ethics and perseverance and positive attitude will certainly enable me to cop up with my disability. I believe that there will be a good employer who understand my situation and hire me for who I am and for the work that I can offer for them.
