Losing my hearing is something I’ve always known was a possibility, but not something I’d ever really thought about. As I’ve gotten older, I always lived by the assumption that I would deal with it if it ever happened, hoping that it never would. However, when I started missing simple things my kids or grandchildren were saying I knew I had a problem.
Hearing aids have always been something I was apprehensive about. However, not being able to hear what others around me were saying is even worse. After just recently purchasing a pair, which is barely visible, I can finally hear my friends, family, and strangers again. Listening to my grandchildren’s animated stories is one of the best things about my weekends. It’s not something I would ever want to miss or want to ask them to repeat.
