Freaky said:deafdyke, I was born HoH (mild-moderate loss) and didn't really need my hearing aids only for the phone. I started losing a lot of my hearing when I was 16 years old and it became severe-profound. I still benefit from my hearing aid a lot as I can hear with it.
Freaky, I too was born hearing, but then became HOH at age 11. I didnt start wearing Hearing Aids til I was 18. I tell you what though, im glad i never had to experience those huge Body Aids you guys have been talking about. I cant believe how awful they sound.. And they would have given me BAD headaches, as I already get bad ones from my ITE's....
I went away this weekend to a friends holiday house in the Mountains. It was ace cool, but caus eit was hot, like Summer, and the bush was just going crazy with the sounds of insects, that was ALL I COULD HEAR for the WHOLE TIME!!
And i was there with about nine other people, all my mates, but they are ll hearing//// And they would talk to me, and I'd have to say
"IM serioius, I just cant hear a word your saying to me, all i can hear are the dasmn Cicadas and insects. "
Really annoyed me, i had a darn headache after that, I imagine Body aids woulda been ten times worse.. Yup yup!
