It has been 11 days since Activation. This week has been a stressful one because my uncle has passed. Finally Today I started to practice my hearing. My friends are telling me I talk " too low" and I am "mumbling." I cant hear myself talk so that is probably why. The mapp is definitely way to low for me. This process is different this time around... It is not the same. I have to learn how to hear all over again. The last few days I have been frustrated because I am not grasping what is being said. I hear better with my good ear the unaided left ear and that is messing everything up for me.
Yesterday I went for a walk because it was 60 degrees. I listened to music by using the audio cable. The audio cable goes directly into my processor and the other end goes into my ipod. I was able to understand Adele's song but I wasn't able to understand The Fray or Staind which are songs I have heard before. Adele's song is fairly new on my ipod. So I am a bit confused why I couldn't understand their songs. The sound was mumbly. I feel like I am missing out a lot. I have only been activated for 11 days. I know I have to be patience and have a long way to go.
I want to use the Sound & Way beyond to practice but I cant because its not MAC compatible. :( So I printed out phonetic words to practice. Someone in the house will repeat the words back to me.
On Tuesday Feb 28th I am going back into the city for a mapping.
