Dr. Hooper very patiently and thoroughly explained why I was having trouble hearing with my aids. I was surprised to realize that user (or erratic use) error was the major problem. I think I was expecting my aids to just magically give me great hearing without the responsibility of doing the necessary work to make it happen. Needless to say, I was on a real high and anxious to give my aids the time-required-to-make-it-happen test (at least 30# days), I certainly intend to wear my aids ALL-DAY-EVERY-DAY from now on to allow MY brain/ears to adjust. I’m feeling very confident now that this will happen.
