I got hearing aids today. To say that I can hear things I never heard before or haven't heard in years, is amazing to me. I was very nervous about these because I get headaches so easy that when I had tried them before, I got such bad headaches. I took them out right away and vowed to never try them again. So far, so good, no bad headaches. It is rather weird to describe what I sound like. I don't like how I seem to echo in my head, I am hoping that will stop or I will get used to this. The pianos sound weird right now too, I am also hoping that will change too or I will get used to it. This hearing through a computer is so very strange. I am at 70% of where I should be because the hearing aid will gradually move me up to 100% percent. They are run by computers now. I can have my hearing aids hooked up to a computer and then they communicate to each other. It is so strange to me.
When I was in the office, a truck drove by the window I was sitting near, I HEARD the truck go by. I have never heard that before. Last night Will was teasing me about being able to hear the background noises in the TV shows and movies. I had to actually ask what background noises was he talking about? I have never heard them.
Heather BT said that it also has changed my speaking voice a smidge. We didn't expect that. She thinks it is because I have to speak so loud so I can hear me and that raises up my squeaky little voice but now that I can hear me better, my voice has lowered a bit. I also don't speak as loud since I can hear myself much better too. I even heard Acer when he was talking to me from upstairs in the hallway when normally I would have to say, Acer come down to talk to me. It was amazing to me. I have been nervous and anxious about this for no reason. I have the other two appointments for the check ups scheduled now. i totally forgot that I needed a total of 3 appointments so I only made the 1 appointment. Now I have the other 2 so it is fine. I just have to check and make sure that it isn't on a day I already have an appointment since December is a busy month with appointments. I think I have 3 in December and 1 in January so far. They are all just check up ones, but I just have to make sure that I don't double book myself like I have been known to do.
I think it will be an adjustment with singing too. I haven't done much singing since I just got them this afternoon so tomorrow will be a test with the singing I need to do. Natalie and Isaac will be singing with me so it will be interesting.
I had planned on watching Law and Order but I think I am just too tired tonight. I do need to get up early tomorrow and go to Sarah and Hannah's tomorrow so I think I will just go to sleep. I am almost ready for it.
I think I have a really loud computer keyboard too because when I am typing, it is loud, really loud.
I also hear Maisy snort more now than I did before. She is such a cute dog. I could just hug her forever if she would let me.
Next to take care of are my eyes as I need new contacts and need to get my macular degeneration checked out too.
