I have been fobbed off with a study in connection with my work, so I pulled out all the stops for this. In my spare time I start working on this in good spirits.
Mum, when are we going to eat? Mum, I cannot find my football gear!
Darling, I am hungry. And where are the insurance papers?
Patiently I put everything aside again and do what most mothers/wives do.
After dinner, when everything has been cleared away, the child has gone off to play football, insurance papers have been found and the rest of the mail has been ordered as well, I go to my mum.
Mum, I come here to study. Here everything is quiet and you can watch television with the deaf loop system, can’t you?
I am Gea Bakker, 40 years, ambulant sheltered housing supervisor. I am married and I have a son of almost 18 years old. I am the youngest daughter of the sweetest mother. My mother, who suffers from Usher Syndrome. The blogs are about how I experience things.
I always thought I was the only one going through this and I hope I can in a casual way show others that it all is very recognisable and above all never boring for the entire family.
#stopUSH and make our dream come true!
