I'm on my way 2 work on this drizzly Friday morning...and my hair is pulled back into a twist & clipped away from my face.



I haven't worn a hearing aid in my right ear for a few months now (it broke & I've been too lazy 2 get it repaired).


My left ear with my CI processor is exposed in all its vulnerability for all the world 2 see. If you look closely enough, you can see the thin cable that leads 2 the magnet that is attached 2 my head underneath my hair.


I *never* wear my hair back because I am EXTREMELY. SELF. CONSCIOUS. about my ear(s) being "naked." Being the neurotic person I am, I assume everyone will stare at me, at my head, at my ear & at the magnet. The horror!

What's the worst thing that can happen? If people stare (without saying anything), I will TRY 2 ignore them. If they ask, I'll proudly declare, "It's a cochlear implant!" :-D

The reason I chose 2 blog about this is so I don't chicken out & take my hair down. Besides, I didn't wash it this morning, so...yuck.

Wish me luck.
