I HATE Bipolar!

Hi everyone,

Right now I'm in a panic because I can't find my spare cochlear implant processors. When I checked the leather case I normally keep them in, they weren't there. Thanks to my severe short term memory loss, I have no idea where they are. I'm extremely frustrated by this situation and am getting tired of all the problems I'm having due to my inability to remember important things. I'm seriously considering asking my pdoc if he can put me on a med which will help address this. If it means I have to take 15 meds, so be it. At this point, I really don't care. Between what my sister said to me last night and what happened this morning with my spare processors, I've had it. Just when I think I've accepted my diagnosis, my patience is tested yet again and makes me wonder if I have the strength to go on.

I've been looking for my spare cochlear implant processors all day and still haven't found them. I contacted my audiologist who is looking into this for me. Hopefully she has my processors or the company who manufactures my cochlear implants does.

I've been looking for them all day. I'm beginning to suspect that I gave them to my audi by accident.

Re: I HATE Bipolar!

I'm hoping to receive an e-mail from my audi sometime today to let me know what happened to my processors. I can't help but feel a great deal of anxiety because if the processors I'm using now stop working, I'll be unable to hear and communicate. (I haven't used tactile sign since my cochlear implant evaluation in 2004.)

Re: I HATE Bipolar!

Thanks Llama. <hugs back>

Right now I'm wearing only one processor so that if something does go wrong, I still have the other.
