In the middle of the night as I watched the lighting storm outside my window I suddenly thought of my Tobii plugged into the wall next to the bed. I woke Mark up and asked him if he would unplug it because I was afraid a power surge would fry one of my lifelines.
I never thought I would consider the Tobii a lifeline because a month ago it seemed like I would never master this difficult machine, but I was wrong. I’m so glad I didn’t give up because this amazing machine gives me my voice back, and with it new hope. The more I use it the easier it gets and the more valuable it becomes to me. Right now I’m using the Tobii machine to type my blog posts, but soon I will be using it for all communication because my speech is getting worse. Typing with my eyes is a new challenge for me but I’m determined to master it.
