    What food are you craving?

    Coffee and wheat-containing snacks and foods. I was told wheat & caffeine make inflammation worse for arthritis. So I have stopped drinking coffee (herbal non-caffeine teas only now :shock:) and have cut down wheat to one serving/day. It's helping, along with the acupuncture. But I sure do miss...

    Special license plates for the hearing-impaired

    I don't think I'd want a license plate to advertise I am HOH. But, then, people with other mobility disabilities get them so they can park in the handicapped parking spaces. So, are they any more a potential victim than a Deaf or HOH person with special plates? Not sure. I like better the idea...

    911 calls

    Wirelessly posted YES! I don't even know if my special caption phone @ home would work. ??? I know my cell wouldn't and I can't make straight voice calls on the cell (data only) and couldn't understand the 911 operator on a voice only call anyway. :O Good news to know they are addressing...

    Sidekick 4G end of life

    We left Tmobile when they pulled that crap and killed the SK I had just bought not even a year before, and then wanted me to pay full price for the Android version after being a customer for years. Went to Sprint and have Samsung Galaxy w/ Qwerty keyboard w/ data only coverage. Now with Apple's...

    What are you thinking about? Part VI

    So tired of trying to find an alternate pain relief med besides Ibuprofen. Since I only have one kidney now, they want me off the Ibuprofen for my arthritis. But so far what they offer doesn't work. :roll: I am now trying Neurontin that is supposed to be safe for my kidney, but also helps with...

    Insurance - yeah right

    Good luck with your insurance paying for them or the VA if you can get quality service from them. I have never had insurance that covered aids. Hearing tests only. Since I started losing my hearing 20 years ago, I've had to get loans to get 4 sets of aids over the years as my hearing drops...

    Earmold colors?

    I wanted purple ones with my recent new aids. Turned out my audiologist said no-no because I need hyper-allergenic ones and the colors make it riskier to get allergic itchy reactions. So ended up with these kind of pale pinkish ones instead. I couldn't even get pretty colors for the actual aid...

    Annoying ignorant hearing people stories

    I resent the "I am so sorry" stuff, too. Had an aunt who kept saying it multiple times a day when I visited her after I had to start wearing hearing aids. Finally I told her hey, the grief is over, OK? I went through the fury and anger and grief and tears, and now I just want to get on with my...
