    When does/did your sense of taste come back?

    Is there something that hearies can wear to simulate deafness?

    Is there something that hearies can wear to simulate deafness?

    The only way a hearing person could simulate being truly deaf is to live the life that we live for several years, no amount of ear plugging, white noise devices or whatever will give a hearie the slightest comprehension of deafness or the many hurdles that we face. It is a total physical...

    (WARNING: ignorant question from a hearie:)

    What actually takes place in a dream rarely makes sense when we wake. I didnt realise we had a resident dream analysts amongst us.

Voices are still weird for me too, other things are fine, keys tapping, micro beeping etc etc, just voices can be a blur specially if more than one person speaking at...

    (WARNING: ignorant question from a hearie:)

    Why Would You NOT Choose A CI?

    CI Relationships

    Thats great Stacie, good to hear things are going well for you. I guess after 2 years of CI any changes in personality, outgoingness, etc would have shown up by now so looks like you've got it sorted.

    CI Relationships

    I wouldnt have given the subject any thought except a couple of people (mentioned in first post) brought it to my attention so I thought I would see if any others had experienced problems. All my relationships have been with hearing guys, some better than others of course. My marriage broke...
