Elbras Posted February 16, 2016 Report Share Posted February 16, 2016 I've been driving for many, many years. I never thought the car was that noisy. So noisy, that after my 2nd mapping yesterday, 2/15, I could not hear my husband very well while he was driving. Now I left the Audiologist's office 10 minutes before feeling wonderful because I could hear better than I have been the past month when I was Mapped for the first time. We get into the car and onto the noisy, city streets and I am totally bewildered. So I think to myself, "food will help!" Food can be somewhat comforting when in a bewildered state. My husband and I go to a deli and it had to be the noisiest restaurant in South Carolina! "What's that noise in the background," I asked? "Rap music," says my husband. Oh my! We start our 2 hour journey home, and my husband's voice sounds "garbled." I remembered his voice sounding garbled the 1st time I was mapped, but just to be sure, I rushed an email to my Audiologist and explain. She told me that I was hearing these sounds better but the noise will likely distract me when listening to speech. My brain needs to adjust to the new mapping. Well, 24 hours later, I am doing so much better with my new mapping that I got 95% of the fruits correct without lip reading!! I am a happy woman!
