Silence to Sounds and Sounds to Silence

It’s such a shock to go from complete silence to a world full of sounds. I still jump a bit every time I put my CI on in the mornings. I sometimes have to clench my teeth the first few seconds while my brain adjusts to it. It’s almost painful.

Check this video clip out http://www.pbs.org/weta/throughdeafeyes/incl/vidpop_equilibrium.html 0:55-1:28 is basically how I feel every time I put it on.

I’ve noticed something new the past couple of weeks. The same thing (although on a different level) is starting to happen whenever I take it off and I immediately go back to silence. It is a shock to go from a noisy world to complete silence.

*sighs* my poor brain……..not sure why I do this to myself. I do have to say that I haven’t gone a whole day without wearing my CI. I just can’t seem to do it even though I’m comfortable in a silent world. Not sure why.

Although it’s pretty cool to be able to switch my “hearing” on and off. Most people can’t do that. 😉

  1. I’m always forgetting that I can turn it off. For example “ow! Ow! I Cant put the dishes away. The noise hurts!” or when they decide to run the vacuum at work randomly. Or aluminum foil, shopping carts and plastic bags. Maybe my map today will help.

  2. Lol Sara, I know exactly what you mean. I don’t know how many times I’ve gone owww…oh wait a second….rightttt I don’t have to listen to this if I don’t want to…although I usually end up listening anyways. ;-)Let me know how your mapping goes!!
