In 2011, she suffered sudden profound hearing loss in her left ear.
She now uses a Phonak CROS II with a Phonak Audéo V hearing aid.
One that comes to mind is a day when my first boyfriend and I were cuddling.
Back then, I wore a much larger model that had an in-ear mold and a giant device that required large tubes.
We searched for the problem, and found that his thick glasses were caught inside my hearing aid tube.You can follow Angie's international discussion group #Hearing Loss Hour on Twitter @hearinglosshour.The audiologist will tell you many things when you get your first hearing aid. Put it in a desiccating box, and change the gel packs every six weeks.I also explained that I sometimes used a hearing aid.My husband and I recently reminisced this moment and I asked him what went through his mind at the time. “I mean, obviously, it sucked for you and I’d be happy for you if you had better hearing but, it didn’t matter to me at all.” So, if the person you’re dating is right for you, your hearing loss should not be a barrier to them wanting to be with you.
