l was told last week that l'm losing my hearing fast in my right side good ear. lm waiting appointment to see specialist to see why it's happening. l have very little hearing in my left ear after having had 2 mastoid ops and was told l would lose most of that hearing. in that side anyway. So over the years iv been hard of hearing and coped really well. Now this past week iv made the decision not to have any more ops and no hearing aids. l just dont want to put myself through any more discomfort etc. And here is the clincher..l actutally like the 'quiet' . My question is..does anyone else feel that way about not wanting hearing aids, ops etc..or is it just me ? My children and my husband have accepted my decision that l made last week and fully respect that choice.. Im taking lip reading lessons now but l was automatically lip reading anyway over the years and will learn sign later...But l wanted to ask on this forum, am l alone in not wanting hearing aids etc, plus would you have them if you had the choice? lv a feeling my sibblings are going to think im very selfish, but l dont think l actually dont care .Am l selfish ?
