I have a severe hearing impairment. I am a PhD Candidate in medieval history. That explains the name of the blog. I have one awesome husband and three usually awesome cats. I am a Christian; I have denominational identity crisis, being currently a Presbyterian but wishing I were a Lutheran or maybe even a Catholic. In any case I take God, Jesus, the Eucharist, and all points of theology pretty seriously. I love to debate stuff – hey, I’m an academic, and we all like challenges.
I also have infertility due to endometriosis. I have horrific, debilitating pain every month. Surgical treatment doesn’t seem to be an option, because most of the growths are on my Fallopian tubes, and no one wants to risk damaging them.
I have started having vertigo, which incapacitates me at least three days a month and is a mystery to all my doctors.
All these stressors have built up until they’ve made me have very bad insomnia for over two years.
I think that’s way too much to be coping with, hence this blog.
