A hearing loss is more noticable than a hearing aid
I remember being so conscious of my hearing aids when I first started wearing them. It felt like they were HUGE! It felt like there was a big flashing neon arrow above my head pointing right at my ears and a sign up reading, “Hey, check this guy out, look at his ears!”.
I still do find myself wondering from time to time if people have spotted them and what they are thinking about them. Last happened a few weeks ago when I was on a bus and there was two people sat right behind me.
Thing is though, most people just don’t care about you or your hearing aids, they are too busy wrapped up in their own stuff and worrying about their own problems. There’s no neon sign.
