Here goes my first day with my hearing thing, I shall keep you all updated with how it goes, and hopefully some funny stories will come from it!

Alright, I’m home from school, and holy shit it was really loud and overwhelming. The aid has volume control, but there is a point where I can’t turn the volume down without losing conversational clarity, so I have to leave it fairly loud. So, I made it about 2 hours, then had to take it out for the rest of the day. I certainly didn’t expect for everything to be this disconcerting and different, but it certainly is going to take a lot of getting used to.
In related news, my friends have dubbed me Cyborg, due to my new gear.

Just went to the audiologist to program my cross-device. The world is a very loud place. It’s all so weird, I’m not sure how to feel.

Bragging

Over the years, my ear doctors have asked me, “oh, are your grades suffering in school because of your problem?” and I’m not going to lie, it makes me really angry that they seem to equate HoH with poor academic performance, even though I am sure they mean well and truly care that my life isn’t suffering from my decreasing hearing. Anyway, to my news, today it was officially announced that I am valedictorian of my senior class!! And I’m just really really super excited about this and wanted to tell you all because AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH IT IS JUST. I’ve been working really hard at this for the last four years and shit it’s really exciting!!!!!

Lesson ??????: If you have a friend who has single-side deafness and you walk on their hearing side, you are a god among men and I love you.

I usually automatically go where my hearing hear is and people usually take a hint.

But it get hilarious when I try to speak with my HoH friends, because they do it too and we usualy go in weird circles. :D
