04:46 pm - Whooooooooah!
I got my CI turned on today!

WOOOOOOAAAH

This is so unlike hearing, yet its hearing, its just so fricking bizarre.

Everything is still kinda tinny. It certainly isn't a replacement ear or anything. And there will certainly be a learning curve.

I've got 3 different "programs" which are particular ways to interpret it. So far I like one the best, (although the 3rd one is just the first one, amplified).

I go back next tuesday for more fine-tuning, and usually a volume increase after your inner ear gets used to the signals.

This is SOOOO funky....

This sounds exciting, and it seems like it would be normal to need some time to get used to it. I hope it all works out for you, and please keep us posted!

I have no idea how to describe it to somebody who can't experience it.

As for how it works, there are about a billion web pages who can explain it far better than I can.

Boy, that was a terribly unhelpful answer isn't it?

I don't like the idea of getting my head cracked open for only twenty-four channels. If I ever get a cochlear, I'll wait until the channel levels are more to my liking.

Where are you from? It never clicked that you were deaf as well.
