Deaf in One Ear Page 2
This page is a supplement to my first post on deafness in one ear and my experiences with it. That page has been getting alot of good stories and input from many people in the comments section. There are many stories and people have been very kind and helpful to others when needed.
I was really surprised when I started that page because I really didn't think there would be much of a response. But there has been and several people even come back more than once to read what others have to say. It has turned out to be a wonderful time for me to see and empathize with others who have hearing issues due to deafness in one ear. I learn quite a bit by listening to the experiences of others.
Just to let everyone know I am now out with my husband on a big truck over the road. That in itself is a challenge, but add deaf in one ear in the mix, and , WOW. I have found that I have to be extra cautious around all these trucks, since I can't always tell where sound is coming from. I am always looking watching the drivers and making sure they see me, so as to not get ran over.
Since being out here on the road with him I have been contemplating the idea of a crossover hearing aid and did a little research and did see some options. Spectacle hearing aids might be a good Idea since I wear glasses as well. As soon as I can get into a hearing aid shop I am going to inquire about what is available and what might be best for me in my situation.
I will be sure and keep you posted, but it may be awhile before I am able to check into it. However is there is anyone out there who wants so share your own experiences please feel free to add your comments. It is nice to see how others cope and what problems or obtacles others have faced. All Comments are welcome.
Thank You to Everyone for your Comments, and for making this a great place to see how others are doing.
