    Transition from analog to digital

    The poster above gave some great advice. In my experience, digital aids did not work well for my profound loss. The sound was muffled and distorted. I could not make sense of speech and could only hear environmental sounds. (Oticon DigiFocus II) When I went back to using my analog Oticon...

    What A Difference Time Can Make

    I'm happy to report that I'm doing much, much better now! :) As for your dog Boris, give him a pat for me! What breed is he? Amelia has completed her training for guide (dog) work. What I meant by her behavior improving is that she had alot of problems with jumping on people and chewing...

    CI Evaluation on monday

    Wow. You weren't tested in noise?? That's strange because it's where alot of HoH/deaf have the most problems. When I had my CI eval, I was tested with single words in quiet, sentences in quiet and sentences in noise. I was also given a complete hearing test and an ABR (because they thought I had...

    What A Difference Time Can Make

    Hi everyone, Please don't flame me for bringing this up, but I wanted to give you an update on how I'm doing. If you'd rather not read about it, please move on to another post. I'm writing this because I've been struggling all summer with my bipolar disorder. I've had several manic...

    Stand-up airline seats unveiled

    LOL. Given how awful airline food tastes in the first place, I don't think that should be a problem. <grin>

    CI Evaluation on monday

    Alicia, I'm glad to read your post because I was wondering what happened with your CI eval. I hope your current hearing aids are serving you well for the time being. Please keep us posted on how you are doing as well as the results of your ABR.

    I don't think I would. I've done some reading on the ABI, and admit to being nervous about the fact that it involves the brainstem. Even though I chose to receive bilateral CIs to increase my own personal safety, improve my hearing, etc. the ABI seems like a risk (for me) not worth taking.

    Stand-up airline seats unveiled

    The article offered a good description of the stand up seats and it's something I wouldn't elect for myself even if it were offered for a cheaper airline fare. I've recently developed some back issues and would think that standing for long periods of time would only exacerbate a person's pain...

    Nucleus 5 -- Experiences?

    Hi Charlotte! Good to "hear" from you! I had a chance to "see" the Nucleus 5 and know that it's deafblind friendly. I saw the remote and know that it's fully operational by a totally blind person. I also know that the external processor itself can be used by a blind person. I guess I...

    Hey there Alicia! Thanks for the welcome back! I've heard Phoenix is beautiful! I'm really anxious to move down there myself! My sister can't wait either because in her words, "she'll have a place she can come to vacation." LOL!

    Hello Bebonang! Thanks for the welcome! I'm more of a hot weather person than a cold weather person. I don't like the cold winters we have here in Wisconsin. LOL! I'm also not much of a fan of the humind summers we have here either! As they say down in Arizona, "It's a dry heat!" LOL! I'll have...
