    Cochlear Implantation benefits

    With my CI I can hear most environmental sounds, I did speak a bit better(most people I talk to don't realise how bad my hearing loss is without me telling them) I can understand familiar people without Lipreading(my mum and my twin)

    Cochlear Implantation benefits

    I was prelingually deafened and received my CI at 10 years old after wearing hearing aids for 9 years. I have done quite well with my CI considering but it is not the best as you would expect which I don't mind.

    Tricky question maybe HARSH question

    Well I was deafened really early, sometime after birth up until 3 months, anyway that is a hard question! Even though I've been severely/profoundly deaf all my life and have a hearing twin and older brother I have always wish I have had some experience of hearing unaided and I always wanted to...

    Speaking clearly

    I gave up on this a long time ago! I used to get worked up everytime I spoke because I was worried people will not understand me. They still dont so I have given up on speaking to people unless I really have to!
