she doesn't want me to stay deaf . I'm on my 5th day of being deaf by choice . Do you think I'm selfish for wanting to stay deaf to be pain free? ......I have a cochlear implant . I took my hearing aid off because the magnet on it pulls the chip that's in my head on the right side . it's been giving me pain for 3 years now. I will do my best to answer everyone question . My head is spinning from this lol

I'm confused. Why are you deaf? Why does hearing cause pain? It is your personal decision and if it makes you happier then that is what you should do.

Can you elaborate a little bit. Why are you deaf by choice?

I have a cochlear implant . I took my hearing aid off because it was hurting me after having it for 10 years.

I think you should take her feelings into consideration. How are you to communicate with her if you are deaf? Why are you in pain? Can your doc not fix the issues that are causing you pain?

can you just wear the hearing aid some of the time?
