I would love to say hearing is a natural thing for me. It’s not. It’s not even close. I have struggled with hearing but it’s never discouraged me from anything I do in life. I just figured since age five I could go on with one good ear and one on the decline it would be fine. Truth is I forgot what hearing was. I hear small pings now, I hear my voice not mumbling anymore, I hear my fingers tapping as clear as day on my phone keyboard. So this is what it’s like to hear with two functioning ears?
This hearing aid is incredible. I am lucky enough to be able to wear one but I wonder, which makes me sad for those who can’t. Sure I missed small sounds and sometimes people walking but I also could feel the wind as they grow closer, my other senses picked them up. I had a big day yesterday getting to know my ears again and I am truly grateful but what about people who can’t afford one or can’t use one because their loss of hearing can’t simply be fixed that easily. I wish everyone had a day like I did but I know it’s just not that easy and for the I am sorry!
