Hello and thank you for reading this. I started losing my hearing about 15 years ago. I now have only about 30% hearing left in my right ear and no hearing in my left. I do, of course, wear an aid in my right ear. I am now 71 and I cry pretty much daily about all that I am missing but I know things could be worse and that I am fortunate in so many other ways. I suppose the only positive is that this happened in my latter years. My audiologist mentioned the implant in my left ear and I may do this. I am scared on many levels. I suppose that is typical being older. Again, thank you for reading this.
