Closed Captioning is my best friend
Organized by: jamie shore
My name is Jamie, I am 38 and have been deaf in my left ear my entire life and have 80% in my right ear. I did not begin to wear a hearing aid until I went to college. I saw others with hearing aides made fun of or looked at as less of a person. I was still picked on as kids picked up on it quickly. Now at 38 I have been thru 3 hearing aides. As I get older and technology advances I need the best quality aides. I was assisted with help from division of vocational rehab services and while grateful it allowed me to afford one of the lower quality aides. At the audiologist one day I tried on the phonak and it was unreal and also expensive! I have insurance but lo and behold it doesn't cover aides for some reason that makes no sense. So here I am seeking assistance. If anything, thanks for listening to a piece of my story.
