My hearing is still spot on.
Of course I would wear a hearing aid if my hearing did deteriorate or WHEN it deteriorates! This is one of our major senses and one would be stupid not to help oneself in this regard (in my opinion)
Yes my hearing has gone down low.
I went and had a test, and guess what! they told me....''Your hearing is fine''.
Then how come I have to ask people to talk louder? or I miss things all the time?
Rubbish my hearing is fine.
I have had a slight problem since school. Five years ago I had them tested and had two hearing aids supplied however I didn't like the sound between the two so now only wear one.
It is great to hear again especially the sound of the birds.
The down side is I keep losing the damn thing. I have fished it out of the dustbin once, out of the sheets before the wash...twice and lost it in the car twice. Currently its in my ear...says she laughing. Oh yes its always in the shower with me ...by mistake...I forget to take it out. I lost it once in the shower tray and it got very wet...didn't work for days then dried out and worked again. Whew it has more than 9 lives!!!
I have the opposite problem. I hear EVERYTHING and it is so painful. I have used the mute button on the tv so much it is broken . . . ads that come on at force 10 with screaming and music etc. If I did go deaf I think I would enjoy the peace (!) Seriously though, I would not have a problem as the male line is deaf in my family so I am used to seeing hearing aids and would use one . . . though I can't imagine it getting to that point at my age. . . was that a pin dropping . . ?
Yes, Iím sure Iím going deaf or Iím partial deal, in my right ear.Have thought of getting the ear teats for a hearing aid. My husband is deaf in his left ear. A friend had a very deaf husband. he had the tests, & she bought his hearing aids from Costco. They are so tiny, I canít even see them. Itís made a huge difference to her life as well, because she doesnít have to spend the whole day shouting & repeating everything to him 3/4 times.!
