Three Month Review

I had my three month review yesterday with my amazing audi. She tested all sorts of things but the end result was to drastically reduce the stimulation rate on my auditory nerves. What does this mean? God knows, but what I did get was that the computer (which controls my implant settings) had set my nerve stimulation rate at 900. This isn't actually that high but it was causing my nerves to react negatively when they had sound passed through them (the constant "dong" sound). My rate is now set to 250, significantly less and wow, what a difference! No more nervous breakdowns for me! Well, not caused by over stimulated auditory nerves anyway.
