Getting old.

Post by trip on April 4th 2017, 5:09 am

Headed to the VA this morning to get my tired ears some help.  I really hate it but I guess it is time for hearing aid's.  The VA will cover 100% of the cost because my hearing loss is service connected from working on jet aircraft.  My understanding is hearing loss can lead to mental issues and I don't need any more help there.  Cool

Wes after you get your hearing aids, if you hear something you don't like, you act like you didn't hear it...and people will say..."he is hard of hearing & didn't hear you"...only you will know...take care

I got them the day I posted this. A little aggravating to get use to but I sure can hear better. I got the Phonak with a small wire and the speaker in the ear canal. All the squeaks and rattles in the car are driving me nuts. I was told it could take several months for me and my brain to get use to them. They communicate with each other and are computer programmed wireless by Bluetooth.
