    I Love Them

    I didn't at first, I didn't want to have to wear them. I put off doing anything about my hearing loss for many years before I "gave in" and had hearing tests 4 or 5 years ago. At first I didn't think that I actually needed hearing aids and it was only when my hearing worsened...
