Did you ever suddenly feel like using oral totally sucks?
I have this happen to me before. When my batteries die and instead of having to explain to hearing people why I went voice off, I feel like just saying "I don't feel like talking right now."
Never felt that way. I always talked. I just tell them that my hearing aid needs a new battery. It rarely happens when I don't have a spare on me. With or without it, I still talk. I'm totally comfortable talking.
