I went to get my ears checked today, because my husband kept suggesting it. My hearing aids have not worked well for months, and sometimes it is because I have wax in my ears. But lately, even when the wax is removed, I can't hear well.
The hearing shop did a good job of evaluating my hearing loss, both with and without my current hearing aids. With my hearing aids in place, I heard only 48% of the test words. 48%. Not acceptable!!
I know it is infuriating to those around me and I get embarrassed when I have to ask someone to repeat something 2-3 times. But I can't help it.
I am on my second set of hearing aids; and both sets have helped, but they are not helping as much as needed. There is a remedy: I can buy a new set, costing double what my current ones cost - or I can get my old ones adjusted.
I go one Nov. 8th (to the place I bought my current aids, nearly 3 years ago) to get my hearing tested, yet again, and get the old ones adjusted to the new test results. Wish me luck!
