Change the quality of your hearing through the aid of the LiNX 3D from ReSound.
In my early 20s, I started noticing that I was having a hard time hearing conversation. I could hear people’s voices, but couldn’t quite make out what they were saying — even when they were looking directly at me. I got very good at playing the head nod game — you know, where you nod your head in agreement like you know what is going on in the conversation. It was a fake out. I had no idea because unbeknownst to me, my hearing was beginning to fail me.
Not too long after that, I noticed that I could no longer hear higher pitched noises like birds and wind chimes. I knew this because environments that I was once familiar with were suddenly foreign to me and I was no longer enjoying life in the same way that other people do. It became harder and harder for me to participate in any group functions or family gatherings and as a result, I became somewhat of a hermit. I isolated myself from the outside world because it was easier than dealing with only hearing half of a conversation.
