When the cat shakes her head the bell round her neck sounds like a rattle
Some birds sounds like bells
Grass makes a swish swish noise when you walk on it.
Water makes a tinkly bell sounds when it splashes on the dock
Peeing sounds like peeing.,, tee hee.
The car indicator makes a quiet clicky noise
I can hear the smoke alarm if I am standing underneath it
The washing machine goes woosh, woosh.
If I pay attention and listen to my implanted ear then I can lipread some of the words of the newsreader, well the lovely Heather Hiscox anyway, well CBC newsreaders probably. Proper ones that speak clearly.
Keyboards make a clacky noise
I don’t like talking as the radio in my head is playing my voice back to me. You know how horrid your own voice sounds on a recording? Well that’s what I hear. I have terrible vowel sounds, estuary English. EEEK. I must work on that!
The damn thing still keeps falling off.
I can’t find my registration card.
My ear is sore from having the gadget behind it, and a pair of specs so today I wore my contact lenses. This was better but I still need to use reading glasses. I’ve been putting a piece of gauze on the arm of the specs to cushion it. I think the humid weather makes this soreness worse. The ear itself, scalp and skull are still tender to touch. I get occasional stabby pains around the implant. Nothing terrible but enough to remind me that something happened there. None of it is terrible really, it’s all going to be fine, but I don’t want to ignore these things, and pretend that its all easy.
