Hello! Welcome to my Website!
I am extremely excited to share my experiences with you and I thank you for giving me this opportunity. Let me briefly introduce myself: My birth name is Nicola Di Capua, but I am known as Nick and I live in the Greater Toronto Area (Canada).
I was born to hearing parents and a family within a hearing culture. At the age of three, I was diagnosed by doctors as being deaf, and was fitted with hearing aids shortly after. I was not able to ‘recognize’ sounds with the hearing aids, as they only came through muffled. Up until the age of 25, I had lost most of my hearing and the hearing aids didn’t give me enough power to hear anything at all. In addition, I kept hearing only high pitch sounds and at that point I decided to remove my hearing aids.
My life changed completely. I was totally in a world of silence. I do recall by memory certain sounds, for example, my dog Eva’s bark or the sound of footsteps. No matter how strange I may have heard them, I miss them very much. Obviously, I had and have no choice but to accept my circumstance of being deaf. A few years later I began to suffer with tinnitus and experienced insomnia without realizing why. It took me a while but as I grew older and experienced many situations, I was able to comprehend ‘the why’.
