COCHLEAR IMPLANT EVALUATION

July 7th I will be going for my CI evaluation. I am very nervous and excited at the same time. Unfortunality my R hearing aid isnt helping me its has only been 6 months with these aids. That is why I didnt want the R aid in the first place. With the Meniere's disease really taken a toll on me its deafinitely affecting my hearing loss. I am still new to this meniere's stuff. I dont really know much about it. I know that my balance and the dizzyness comes along with it. NO FUN AT ALL. I told my mother that I am going into the CITY to get the hearing test done. I explained to her what the CI was etc. She told me that apparently " EVERYONE SAID I CAN SPEAK FINE". I explained to her that just because I CAN speak fine doesnt mean I can hear. Its true and I know that people with a hearing loss have no idea what its like. But for me I have to hear. I want to be able to hear things especially my niece. Right now I only have one ear to rely on and no one knows that I go through a struggle everyday. I dont show it because I've gotten used to it as my hearing loss progressed. I am hoping for success on July 7th! I will be back with more information soon.

Smiles!

You are in my thoughts and prayers, Danielle.
Another online friend of mine got a CI this year and you may want to check out her blog. It's called I Look So I Can Hear. I'm going to be writing about her on my blog.
Sending a virtual hug to you for the 7th,
Sarah
