Hearing Aid

Ya baby!! I have a hearing aid now!! Very exciting!! $2300.00 worth of goodness!!!

It really sounds like a microphone in my ear. But I'll get use to it. Right now its at 80%. They hope to get me up to 100% in a few weeks!
And its so tiny!
I auto adjusts to the noise environment I'm in. So theres no "turning it up or down".
My hearing isnt really all that bad. Depending on the situation I just basically loose the ends of most words and some beginnings. And depending on the melody of your voice I might only get half of what you say. Takes a lot of concentration to understand people when I'm in crowd. And lets face it... with ADD I have a hard enough time catching everything anyways.
It has lead to some funny conversations though.
