The other night I went with my friend to the beach. Since I couldn't exercise I decided to go down by the water to hear the ocean for the first time. My entire life I wore hearing aids up until I couldnt benefit from them anymore. It's amazing that I can hear the ocean with my processor. I didnt have the opportunity to hear water growing up.
Hearing the ocean with my processor for the very first time was overwhelming for me. I didn't get the chance to do this last summer with my first implant because the implant failed.
At first the waves seemed so loud because I was standing right in the water. After a few minutes the water became so peaceful to me. I wanted to sit there all night.
I had the perfect night for this moment. There was a clear sky and full moon. I even took an eight minute video so I can listen to the waves over and over again. That night when I came home before bed I listened to the waves again.
