im naturally strong-minded person and doesnt give **** about what other people thinks but heres my insights, dont worry about what other deaf people think, just be strong and said look, im still deaf and do i still uses signs? yes am i still same jenny? yes so shush stop get all worked up over object behind my ear and focus on me and move on
if they reject you they're not worthy being your friend.
CI is mere object you'll be same deaf jenny. and it wont affect your disability because you're still deaf when its turned off and its not normal hearing so it will not change a thing except ability to hear better than ever when you want to and pop coil off when you want to be deaf
