After more than a year of being half deaf in my right ear, I broke down and did something that makes me feel really old!
Cute little bag, right? Wonder what's in the cute little bag?
I'll give you a couple of hints...it's smaller than a breadbox, it costs a lot of money and most likely, no one will ever know I have it.
Cute isn't it? My very own, personal hearing aid. UGH! It's a little larger than the smallest ones available because I wanted a volume control. The funny wire on the left is a kind of anchor that helps keep it in my ear.
I've been wearing it for several days and it's okay. It reduces my hearing loss by about half. I think I hear better, sometimes it's hard to tell. It definitely increases background noises, especially road noise. Some days it's very comfortable and other days it makes my ear hurt and I can't wait to take it out.
It's guaranteed for two years and hopefully will last at least five. I was surprised to learn that the battery only lasts a week, so that adds about $40 a year to my budget.
Bill says I don't talk as loud now ;o)
Thanks for stopping by...
