    looking like i'm special ed.

    in about 3 weeks i get hearing aids for both ears. not the tiny little in your ear canal ones, but the big giant ocular ear implant looking ones.

    i'm excited to be able to hear better, but not looking forward to the shit i'll get from people for having them. damn the flightline, damn it right to hell. on a brighter note, maybe they'll cross train me into an AFSC that's quiet... that way my tinnitus will drive me ape shit.

    stupid hearing problems.

    But on a positive note, you could become a poster boy for wearing ear defenders. :coold:

    i suppose- though i am very good about having them on, even double hearing protection when required.

    i've lived with that crap for 8 or 9 years now, it only bothers me when it's silent around me; like at night when i'm laying in bed and it seems like someone is pointing a sonic death ray at my head at full throttle...

    my career field has alot of problems with that too. but most of people just pretend to fail the hearing test for the disability check.

    I used to have a "nature sounds" alarm clock that I used to give me background noise at night. I'd turn it way down and off to sleep I went. :hs:

    i'm going to look into this today. i've been putting it off for a long time. i actually want one of those small round background noise things you see in waiting rooms that keep you from hearing stuff going on in the back... i can't hear shit with one of those in the room- all i see is mouths moving

    I know they're very expensive, but could you buy the tiny ones if you could afford them, or are they different and just won't work?

    the tiny ones are for lower frequencies, the ones i need are for the upper range... starting at a woman's typical voice and higher... it sounds ironic, but it's true... i can't hear women and children well at all... and i can't hear them period if there is significant background noise (as in riding in the car & louder)

    i listen to music a little to loud for the other people around me and when they complain i honestly don't understand why. it sounds just right to me. i don't listen to anything with the volume wide open... but according to other folks, it's just a little too loud.

    i'm glad i'll be able to hear it the same as them finally. i'd trade your husband, but then i wouldn't have a mute button for my wife LOL shhh...
