What's that you say?

You see, the inability to hear on a daily basis
during normal simple everyday things like ordering a cup of coffee at Starbucks or going through a drive-through to order food to take home to my family were challenges that I often failed, and it made me frustrated and angry all the time. This affected people around me and especially the people I hold most dear; my own family. Now all of that is gone and Iā€™m like an entirely new person because of this transformation.
How I got my life back ā€“ my hearing has been restored to near-normal | Watts Up With That?

Your Say

I finally broke down and got a hearing aid in June. Only one ear; the other's hearing was still normal. But the difference is still startling, before and after.

BTW, I got it at Costco, whose service, selection and prices are unbeatable. Free lifetime maintenance,too. Nothing but kudos to them.

I'm about 2/3 deaf. I hear all I want to hear. Most of what I do hear I've heard before at least once during these 83 years. If I thought I was missing anything I would get an ear piece. But I don't and I'm not.

BillH: my sentiments too. Too much ordnance did for me. I will live with what I have and how's that go: believe none of what you hear and half of what you see?

My uncle Letsgo Lozko lost hearing in one ear in WWII. I asked him why he never got a hearing aid. He replied "Vat? I don't need, listen to chickens. Dey don't sing."
