Now I know I'm not 7 anymore, and I know I'm not going to be beaten up for having the aids this time, but I'm really struggling not to go back to that place in my head when it was so hard for me back then.
I can get smaller, more discreet aids if I go to a private provider, but they're not cheap. I'm looking at over £2000 for a pair, and that's not the kind of money I have.
I also want to learn British Sign Language along with my sister, so that I can still communicate with her if/when it reaches the point that the aids don't work, so any money towards that would be amazing, as I can't find any free classes in my area.
If you could spare even a couple of pounds towards funding my aids/BSL classes I would be forever grateful.
Me, my mum, and my sister will all be doing some fundraising activities to help raise the money too, so watch this space!
