Being relatively young and generally aware of how I present myself, I was really reluctant to entertain the thought of using hearing technology even though I knew I probably needed them. I somehow thought they would age me and lessen my self-esteem and confidence. How utterly and completely wrong I was!
They have transformed my life. I am so much more myself in company as I am no longer anxious about mishearing others and getting 'the wrong end of the stick'. I feel confident that I am able to converse easily and effectively after years of feeling stupid and anxious in many social contexts. I have become extremely fond of my rather trendy, sophisticated, compact, olive green aids! They work wonderfully well and I am so pleased "I took the plunge". I am myself once again.
