As posted before, I said about how I was getting hearing aids. I'm 19 and this is a huge blow to me. However, they're not as bad as I though. I wear Siemens brand, behind the ear for partial hearing lost, believed to be hereditary. They're somewhat comfortable in a weird way, yet uncomfortable. I feel like everyone is staring at me when I wear them though. However, I know this'll pass with time. They have a slight tendency to squeal, but that's just them being new and adjusting from what I've learned. Overall though, not as bad as I though!
