I thought lack of hearing is supposed to be depressing, not hearing aids, but I am really struggling with the hearing aids.
I went back last week because there was no change in my hearing. They replaced the domes that carry the sound into my ears. Originally, they were open, which they hypothesized was letting the sound leech out.
Things are clearer now, and the key word is things, like the creaks of my chair. People are no better. They might be louder, but I can't understand them.
This is the nature of my hearing loss. I can hear, but my brain can’t translate them.
I asked the doctor up front if these hearing aids helped with this type of hearing loss. She breezily said they do.
Now I am not sure.
