    I am going for a consultation for a Baha later this month. I have used hearing aids for 10 years and I’m a little nervous. It will be one of two major surgeries done at once. If these surgeries fail I will be a CI candidate.

    Service dog

    I am throwing around the idea of getting a service dog. It would be half for hearing and half for psychiatric stuff. Does anyone on here use a service dog and has it helped you? I want to be sure I want one if I'm going to shell out the money and time to train.

    Beep beep

    Beep Beep Beep, two days of beeping. Die or be quite. I strongly dislike when my hearing aids are dying. I like to wait until the batteries are totally dead before I change them so I have to live with 2-4 days of beeping. Any one else have long lasting dying batteries? I have oticons.
