WELL... I failed my new intro check-up with primary care doctor in the hearing category :( Met with her on Wed and the audiology guy, who was very nice and he said I was 'a very good looking woman' !!! no one has ever told me that before, sort of set me aback.... it was in the context that I did not want some old huge thing sticking out my ear, I think in any case I would not like that!!! But they have so very many alternatives to that anymore, it is ok... So this week end I am 'trying' some aides out.... and it is really startling.. 1st thing was I turned the tv down from a sound setting of 52 to 30!!! And can hear all manner of things being said. going to the movie today to see if that is better too, as I am always saying what? what? what did they say??? maybe, just maybe I will be able to hear everything all by myself, do you think??? We get so used to compensating for our defincincies (sp) that do not notice a change, until there is something drastic that helps..... it sort of makes me feel old, but then again I think if this makes things easier for me, and I am not in the dark or outside the loop so much of the time, one might say.. I think it is an ok thing. AND of course Medicare, so then insurance does not pay for these, just like vision, apparently, as we age we no longer need to see or hear to go about our lives...!!!!! BUT they have a payment plan, so convenient of them, don't u think??? hahaha
So am entering a big new world... it is sort of like when I had cataracts removed and was able to see!!! things I never knew were there before... geez..... miracle.......
Take Care All and God Bless
Taking one day at a time and ever moving forward
