Just a quicky.
I had a new map added yesterday, some tweaking here and there. Seems I am doing just fine on the technical side of things. An audiogram showed that the residual hearing is almost what it was before surgery. So all well and good there.
The new map is great in some respects but somehow seems quieter. I went into work this am for some training and was able to hear better except in some rooms when it was much worse. All very odd. Damn those acoustics.
The real reason for a short post is that I am feeling rather battered emotionally. One minute smiling and grinning like a Cheshire cat, then blubbing because I can hear Holst’s The Planet Suite. ( Britons will understand this reference more I think. Tunes such as “Land of Hope and Glory”, “I Vow to Thee my Country” Stirring stuff, yes I know I’m an expat but it’s in your blood somehow). Then one thing goes wrong and I am a floppy wet dishcloth of a wreck. Did anybody warn me of this?? No. Well to be fair Glenice did mention something but most CI bloggers don’t seem to have had the same problem. Maybe it’s just me.
One thing I find particularly disturbing in both a good and bad way is that after all these years of being trapped by my hearing loss into being someone I am not, now the old me is bubbling under the surface. It’s rather scary and exciting.
