Finally doing something about a long time issue
I have had issues with my hearing for many years...like over ten. If someone whispers, as often happens in office settings, the best I can do is smile and nod as I have no idea what was said. My husband's voice is deep and I often can't hear him and he gets crabby over me constantly saying 'what'. I seldom watch TV because I have to have it fairly loud and I rely on closed captioning a lot.

So, I have an appointment Thursday with an audiologist. I finally decided that it's way past time to do something about my lack of ability to hear normal conversation. I hope that she will be able to help me out and that I will be able to afford the right choice for me. Undecided

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Down side is you will als be able to hear the annoying people more clearly as well.

Jokes aside I wish you nothing but the best and hope you can get something worked out Smile

Hope they can get you fixed up. That could be dangerous if it gets worse. Thumbsup

I got mine earlier this year, I had forgotten what the higher range pitches sounded like. Good luck.

The best part about a hearing aid -- the "off" switch.

For those times you really just don't want to hear somebody's bullshit.....

Hearing aids in...this is going to be a bit of an adjustment.

Driving home I realized that my turn signal indicator tone is really freakin' loud. Blink

Cool thing is that I can listen to podcasts or Pandora with my phone playing straight into the hearing aids. Thumbsup

TV volume is currently set at 14 when it's usually set on 20 and I think it's too loud.

Damn...my hearing was worse than I thought it was.
