I miss music

    Has anyone else had music pretty much taken from them?

    I'm doing the best I can with my djembe and old familiar songs that I can guess from hearing them, but I really miss the piano and listening to pretty music.

    This is kind of a depressing spin-off from the musician thread.

    Got me to thinking.

    Oh, and I'm really angry about the false advertizing about cochlear implants.

    They say they give a person music.

    I can tell you from experience, that if you never heard music before, you'd never get it in a million years.

    I had it completely before and now it's just dead tinny loud stuff.

    I can barely recognize a song if someone tells me what it is.

    It's late here and I was just thinking about stuff.

    I want to put on Joan Jett and rock out, create some rhythms on Matilda (drum).

    Bump for curiosity's sake.

    I don't believe I've ever had that problem.... Hope you get it back soon

    Sad to hear of your situation. I am starting to lose my hearing and not looking forward to missing the sound of music. I miss out on the chirping of birds and anything in the higher pitches.

    My wife's parents were both deaf. My father-in-law was actually stone deaf. My wife currently teaches deaf children, some with a little residual hearing, but none with cochlear implants. The sad part for you...is that among other things, you are missing music...and you know exactly what you are missing. My heart goes out to you.

    My heart goes out to you as well, White Dove. I'm listening to Joe Cocker's Woodstock rendition of "With a Little Help From My Friends" in your honor right now.

    PS - He was as high as a kite while singing that and probably heard lots of music that wasn't there.

    Hi White Dove...

    I am not familiar with your problem but you have my deep sympathy. A day without music is a sad day.. I can only hope for your improvement.

    Thanks, friends

    It will only get better as technology improves for CIs.

    Mine are 10 years old, so due for new updated ones.

    Must wait until they break down, though.

    In the meantime, I LOVE ROCK AND ROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
