Working with Wendy, my hearing consultant was a well delight. She was patient, helpful and sensitive to my hearing needs all the way.
Having used the hearing aids for the last three months, I am amazed at how different my life has been. I can now hear the birds, the children, and the voices of my loved ones. Watching TV has been a delight and social occasions have been pleasurable.
My work has been less stressful now that I can hear other members of committees, other diners on the other side of the large round table, students in my classes. I don’t even have to speak as loud because I can now hear myself. I am less misunderstood because I am not “shouting” at people. In fact, I am now accused of speaking too softly.
The pleasure of being normal is in itself a real plus in the quality of life. Sometimes I just wonder why I waited so long to attend to this vital need. Though the price may be somewhat a deterrence to earlier action, over the long haul, missing out on those pleasure memories from sound was indeed a greater loss. The only set back might be my need to change my will now that I can hear what people are saying about me.
