My absenteeism from this blog can be laid firmly at the door of cyborgdom. If it wasn’t for those computers in and around my head then I wouldn’t be out and about, socialising, taking painting lessons, learning Tai Chi, going to the movies.
It really has made that much difference to my life and I have neglected the blog but I’m back now. I’ve been reminded of how much I enjoyed the contact with other hard of hearing and deaf people because of a Facebook group for cochlear implant users. I’ve made some good friends through blogging, many of whom I have never met in person but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t real friends. The support network out there is amazing and if you are feeling isolated physically and emotionally then use it, grab it with both hands and make some internetty friends.
