I think that will be my biggest problem because I have gotten so use to not really talk to people I don't live with like my mom and step dad or my close family cause I'm use to them and they are use to me so it's not much of a problem to communicate but when I'm around new people or groups I'm lost and I generally just sit back.

There are so many many ways to do aural rehab independently that you will have many options to start. However, it is important, in my opinion, to do some aural training with family and friends as well. After all, those are the voices you will be listening to a lot!

It's rather common that once people start hearing better with their CIs, they venture out and become more talkative with others. For many, this is a very empowering part of their journey.

Once you are activated, it will be in your best interest to be listening as much as possible.

Hi Arielle, I found that once I received my CI, I challenged myself and put myself in situations that I would normally avoid. It takes a lot of work, but it's worth all the effort. You will discover a whole new world. It can get frustrating but remember our 3 Ps - patience, practice and perseverance.

I would advise you - don't think about it, you will see all what you have to when that time come in front of you... Don't be scared of asking people to repeat themselves...

I have learnt that kindly asking them to repeat their words followed by a smile - there are really few people who wouldn't repeat themselves... or do not want to help...
