It was one year ago today...

..that my Cochlear Implant (CI) got turned on. It certainly has been quite the exciting ride.

Some things that I attribute directly to this:

  • I'm employed again. [and the various rewards that go along with that, like my home.]
  • I can talk on the phone. In fact, I have and use a cellphone most of the time.
  • I date again.
  • I am more connected to whats going on around me.
  • I'm far more confidant than I was
  • I actually enjoy music again.

I'm not going to say I'm "cured" or anything like that. I still have my problems, and my hearing is certainly not as good as other people's, but there's a huge difference between my life a year ago, and my life today.
