Just a very quick update. On Monday it will have been 4 weeks since switch on.

There has been no improvement since day one. The distortion is still there, no clarity can be found anywhere amongst the rasping noise that my brain is interpreting.

I am wearing it every day. Some days I manage only 15 minutes. Other days I manage as much as 2 hours. Longer than that, and I struggle with patience, tiredness and general frustration.

I am starting to lose hope, am I going to be one of the very unlucky ones? I am trying to keep clinging onto it has hard as I can – in the long scheme of things – it’s still very early days right?
