New here, maybe I wont feel so alone now
Hi Everyone! I hope this site helps me. I am a 44 y.o. lady who got my first pair of aids 5 years ago. I am married, 4 kids, 1 grandson, another grandchild on the way in the summer, I also am in college, the only person in the school with hearing aids. You would think with so many people I deal with on a daily basis, I wouldnt feel alone, yet I do. No one knows the embarrassment of wearing hearing aids, the shame I feel at times when someone finds out. I am glad I can hear my grandson laugh, best sound in the world but honestly, it stinks having hearing loss. My latest hearing test was 65 to 70% hearing loss, 5 yrs ago when I went for my first hearing test since I was a kid it was only 50%. I am getting into the business world soon and I am scared to be turned down due to my hearing aids, since its a "disability". Sorry to go on and on but I just needed to vent.
