    Does anyone keep "old" c.i. component boxes or should i toss them?

    I had the implant @3 years ago but kept the boxes for all the returns. They're all labeled (by me) w/a date and what the issue was. Is there any valid reason for me to hang on to empty boxes for cables, processors, clips, you name it I've probably returned it. I may have needed the boxes for...

    Only for Deaf (as in always) - Can you understand music?

    Folks: This applies only to those who were likely deaf in the womb. Can you understand music in any way? Like do you know what a musical scale would be or what a rhythm or perhaps more difficult, a melody is? When I went to a concert at the Freemont School for the Deaf in CA, (husband of a...

    FL became the 36 state to allow same sex marriage

    I don't need a link to an article as this is pretty common news. While it was fine the federal government gave same sex marriage equal rights, at a state level, they were not always in synch. I sent some requests to different media to ask them how does filing at a federal level mess up not...

    Do those of you who are HH or with a CI have tricks to understanding the world?

    Here's an example of what I used to do to decipher what's said in conversation when I had naturally bad hearing (no CI at that time, just HAs). Of course, this goes without saying I read lips. 1. Counted the number of syllables. 2. Detected intonation. 3. Read body language, which is where...

    CI on head ?

    I'm currently unable to get a response from the fellow who did the surgery for my implant. Perhaps someone knows what's happening. I don't have local CI experts. When the implant was done, it protrudes on my mastoid. There's also a movable "tube-like" thing that runs directly to the back of...
