Sun, Nov 3 3:07pm · Hearing Loss: Come introduce yourself and connect with others in Hearing Loss

What did you want stem cells for? (BB from NYC!)

Thanks again for your comments. The way I read their wording, I thought they were talking about couples – in the narrow sense or just one sense of the word!

Thanks much for your comments. When was it that you were checking out MCI programs? Looks like the closest to me in NYC. would be the place you went – Jacksonville. The irony is that it looks like the Habit people are not interested in working with widows or widowers who don't have a partner! 🙁 But I may follow up with your suggestion of talking with them on the phone anyway. If I weren't so busy already (partly thanks to the MCI) I would consider seeing about advocating for something like that here in the Big City! 🙂

Does anyone know how I, from NYC, might find a similar program such as HABIT?

Thank you Colleen. I am mostly on my computer, sometimes on my phone. As far as I can tell there is no focus for specifically cochlear implants. Is that correct?

Hello Colleen, I don't recall whether I have introduced myself! Can you advise on that? I do have a question regarding my Med El processor and batteries! Will await hearing from you before posting my question. Thanks!

I'm not sure if I ever introduced myself here! I tried to find out by scrolling many communications but found it very confusing as to which way led to recent communications and which to older ones. For example, are the lower numbers representing recent or much older communications. Hope you know what numbers I'm referring to! I guess I'll wait to introduce myself till I hear back from you. Thanks! Barbara

Wed, Oct 9 7:59am · Balance issues and hearing loss in Hearing Loss

Wow Joyce! I can't believe what you are saying about the effectiveness of proprioception with balance. It just sounds too good to be true! But I will have to try your recommendations. I have had balance issues since 1996 and been to various physical therapists (including the well known Rusk Institute) and have never been advised in the way you do here. In fairness, I'm sure I was asked to stand with my eyes shut but the details about standing in your bare feet and noticing the feelings in your feet I have never heard of. My balance problems initially were caused by surgery to remove the benign tumor on my acoustic nerve which, as you know, is next to the balance nerve. I am wondering what if your balance nerve is really damaged, can proprioception really compensate? Living in NYC with its wealth of medical resources, if what you say really could work, I don't understand how I could not have heard of it!!!
