  1. I didn't. Why did he want you to get dizzy? I don't understand.
  2. Yes, @Tutz67, best of luck with your activation! It's a cool experience, followed by months more of cool! @Daniel the Stranger, congratulations on the house! We just bought one too but it's not our first. We're knee-deep in paint and cedar plank siding these days.
  3. Hi, @Daniel the Stranger! Nice to see you here. I hope you're doing well!
  4. @pdk Peter, in my experience it takes a long, long time for your brain to sort music out. I'm starting to hear music better (On November 1st it will be the first anniversary of my second activation). I have had a long commute since June - about 45 minutes in each direction and I listen to music the whole time. It seems to be helping.
  5. @Daniel the Stranger is somewhere in South Australia, isn't he?
  6. @bclap the sounds from your CI will sound buzzy and beepy for a while. Give your brain a chance to learn to hear this way! It's completely different from hearing via your inner ear. Did your clinic give you any rehab advice?
  7. @mgfiest I have a similar thing going on, though not exactly the same. For me, the TV sounds really clear. But music is taking a very long time. I just noticed this week that some songs that had been sounding tinny and weird are starting to sound better - I have heard individual voices or instruments well for some time, but it's taking my brain a while to sort out harmony and multiple voices/instruments. I think it's going to keep getting better!
  8. Hi, @Marlene and welcome! A lot will change in the first year - it's exciting! I'm glad you're regaining the ability to hear.
  9. One year ago, right now, I was in the OR having my second CI implanted. My life since then has changed immeasurably. My heartfelt thanks to Med-El, and also to the community here, which has been stalwart in support of all the implantees that wander in. https://hearinglisten.blogspot.com/
  10. Ha! That must have been cool. Now if you could just predict how long that last 13 minutes for the washer will last. I've seen my washer tell me 1 minute left for at least 15 minutes.
  11. @Mary Beth I wear jeans almost all the time and put the Fine Tuner in the jeans pocket. Once in a while I lean on a table and accidentally change a setting but I just reset. 🙂
  12. I put my Fine Tuner in my pocket. I have not had a need for it to be inside anything.
  13. @Mary Beth I love when I can have those hallway conversations with colleagues. Walking in opposite directions, little quiet jokey comments. Listening to music in the car, visiting with some people that I used to work with. Just being able to live a normal life again.
