25 thoughts on “The Truth About What it is Like Wearing Hearing Aids”

  1. I was born 50% deaf when I was born, I started wearing hearing aids In kindergarten. 2 years ago I got a plastic piece stuck from my hearing aid In my ear way far down my ear, I had to go to the doctors to get It removed, that was the most painful thing I’ve ever felt In my life. So now I never wear them even tho I have to. I don’t like to wear them because I get teased for them and they hurt my ears. I have a audiologist appointment next week I really don’t want to go! And tips for hearing aids?

  2. I started wearing hearing aids back in 75 when I was 8. Coming from the UK we can get hearing aids on the NHS. There's no charge upfront and basically all you have to do is make an appointment to see a GP who will refer you to the local audiology centre where you get a hearing test and get hearing aids similar to the one's your wearing. You could really do with something similar in America. I actually went private so the aids I bought don't need the tubes changing and the moulds are smaller. They still stick that gunge in your ear but the tubes don't go hard as there's a small plug in the mould that protects the tubes from the wax. One of the reasons you may be getting a lot of wax in your ears is because ear moulds are an irritant and cause wax build up. Totally not your fault and nothing to apologise for. Take care and I hope you get the support you need with the tubes etc. Oh my aids play a tune when I switch them on. I do a dance with my little boy when they play!

  4. It’s refreshing to find a relatable video about hearing aids. Most videos about hearing aids are made for older people and for some reason It’s annoying for me that there are so many videos about the struggles of wearing glasses but not much about hearing aids. It’s probably cause more people wear glasses though
