BarbWV Posted February 2, 2014 Report Share Posted February 2, 2014 Hi everyone! Just a quick update- I had my first CI Activation Friday (right side)! It is definitely a different world! I am starting to understand voices that I hear a lot, my husbands, neighbors, friends I see everyday. Unfamiliar voices, restaurant server, store clerks, family members I don't see not so much. I hear constant buzzing and wind type noises. Everything is pretty robotic, but I am thrilled I can make out some voices- more than I have been able to in years. I imagine the adjustment period will have good and frustrating days. I will be returning to work tomorrow- I work in HR for a global pharmaceutical company. Does anyone have advice on what to say to co-workers as I might be mis-understanding more than before? Something simple and to the point as a lot of them think hearing will be instant. I will be wearing my HA on my left side as needed but would like to give myself the best opportunity to get used to the CI. Thanks for all your help & support!
