I’ve been to see my hearing therapist today. I’m lucky I only had to wait 2 weeks for the appointment, but I’ve been seeing her on and off for 18 years.
I’ve had a hearing test that shows my left ear (noisiest one) is heading towards profound in not picking up speech.
My hearing aids are 12 years old as I was frightened to change them when things seemed ok, but seems if I’d had a hearing test a while ago I would have been given the new aids with built in maskers. I’m being fitted with these next Thursday.
My therapist has said that with the increased sound getting in the t shouldn’t be so much of a problem - fingers crossed 🤞🏻
The audiologist I’m seeing has been highly trained in helping tinnitus sufferers, so I guess I’m living in the right area.
I’ve also been told to steer clear of this or any other forum as constantly reading negative posts has a negative effect on the t as it’s constantly being pushed into focus.
I won’t post again until next week when I’ve hopefull got my new aids, but I will read any replies to this post.
Take care xx
