Yesterday I went to have my 12 month assessment for my CI. My regular Aud was off sick on the day and I had a different one. So the assessment didn’t happen just new mappings from hell.
Well she got stuck into me and told me I’m not utilising my EAS, “not to worry I’ll fix that for you” Jeepers did she ever fix my mappings. I have 4 new ones, all louder than the previous one. All a pitch or 4 higher than what I’m used to.
Everything is so sharp, the S & SH sounds are cringe worthy. All I can hear is someone screeching, very squeaky and screaming at me. Even making a cup of coffee and stirring the coffee. The spoon scraping on the cup is so sharp. I don’t dare drop anything on the sink as I jump it’s that loud. And I have to put up with this horrid noise for 8 weeks.
I’ve lowered the sensitivity to 5, lowered the volume to 2 and it’s still screaming at me. I’ve just discovered that my “master volume” hasn’t been activated neither has bas or treble icons.
I’ll give it a week and try to adjust to this new sound as I realise new pathways need to be made. But if after a week I’ll go and get my old map added and take off one of the new ones…SIGH… Why do some Auds have to interfere when things are going very well?
