Silent talking… November 13, 2008

Posted by loz121 in I.
I wonder if anyone esle ever has moments where they think they can hear although they can’t? Like when I have the external part of the cochlear implant switched off, the silent world I have lived with since i was 8 years old and am quite used to but sometimes I feel I hear something but it’s just the vibration or something like that. It’s a very strange feeling for example I can be in a bath in silence and I think I’m hearing splashing but i’m not if you know what I mean because I KNOW I can’t hear without the cochlear implant on! Im in complete world of silence! Also, when I have my cochlear implant off my ear to go in bath or when I just want to spend some time without it on, my parents have told me that I tend to get my words jumbled up or not saying them right and that my voice goes quiet because I can’t hear my voice and know what I am saying. It always go back to normal when I put the cochlear implant back on! I always found that strange! hehe
I’m really looking forward to Christmas coming! The shopping has already started! I love christmas! The songs, the get togethers with family & freiends, presents, the dressing up, christmas Tv and food!!
Christmas is gonna be good!! šŸ˜€

I have experienced that in various settings. Sometime, I thought I heard my name being called so I would say “what?”

yeah, i get that lot, especially at swimming. ~I always seem to think i can hear my hearing friends if they come with me.

Then again, I can lip-read better without my implant, that’s what i have notices. for some reason, i don’t know why, how wired is that!
