I really feel a frustration right now. I have been told that I need a dog
guide more because of my worsening hearing. Yet, that is also the reason
that it is harder for me to use one.
I don't have the directional hearing that I once had. I have a more
difficult time hearing distance from traffic. With my cochlear implant, I
sometimes hear too well in some ways and not well enough in others. By too
well, I mean that hearing the distance of traffic from me can be a real
problem, and the main street near here gets quite busy.
By not well enough, I still have a lot of trouble with environmaneal noise.
Traffic noise can obscure people talking to me.
Quattro has a veering problem, and I have been working with the school and
volunteers to get things straightened out. We have several curbcuts which
were poorly designed. If I followed them, the would take me diagonally
accross the intersections. This would be a very dangerous thing.
Have any of you had these problems, and how did you overcvome them?
