I have not wore my hearing aids since Friday. I was watching the start of the Super Bowl. The crowd noises were getting to me, plus I felt like I was getting a little overwhelmed with all the sounds, so I decided to give my CI a rest. I put on my HAs on my right. It's so strange NOT hearing the sounds that I heard through my CI. That's when I realized how much I have been missing. Everything sounded slightly different. I even tried to put my CI and HA at the same time. The HA overpowers the CI, and I can't hear anything much from the CI. I don't think I will be able to wear both. I don't care. :-)
I put on my CI this morning. I normally watch court shows all day. I was listening to Judge Milian, and I could hear some of her words without looking at the screen. That was cool. I also noticed that I could really hear her accent. Normally with HA, I could hear the slight Spanish/Cuban accent, but it wasn't as prominent as with the CI.
CI is cool eh? Because I'm a Star Trek Fan (well, I never saw any of the original series, just TNG, Voyager, DS9), I have decided to give myself a Borg destination. Eight of Nineteen, Nucleus Freedom of Unimatrix Two-One.
Not sure yet what to name the processor. There was someone that named her processor Thing 1 and Thing 2 because she had bilateral implants. There may be a chance that I will go bilateral, so I have to think of a name that has a twin, but still sound good alone. Maybe I'll name it after a video game character. :-)
