BAHA Free Week

I spent a week without my BAHA (Bone Anchored Hearing Aid) and it was not easy.

I would try to focus on every word people were saying, but I still missed a good bit of it.  I would then have to fill in the blanks as best I could.  I was constantly asking people to repeat themselves.  It was exhausting.

Most people are not used to communicating with someone that has a severe hearing disability.  They forget to look directly at me, so I can read their lips.  They also start talking without getting my attention.  I may not even know they are speaking to me.

I finally got my BAHA back and I am excited to be able to function again.
