Hi everyone! Welcome back to my channel! Or I guess if you are new just welcome! Welcome to my channel! I’m Chrissy, this is my sign name. Today what we are going to discuss is the reasons why I wear hearing aids. Hearing aid chimes* Whistles* CHRISSY: So I don’t use hearing aids every day. Some days I just don’t feel like putting them on. It’s doesn’t matter, I’ll explain that later. But I want to start with the 3 top reasons why I always prefer, not really prefer, just why I enjoy and am content with having hearing aids on. So there are there are the three top reasons. The first reason why I wear them is that I am comfortable with hearing aids on. So, I grew up hard of hearing and because of progressive hearing loss I slowly became deaf. So, I’m used to have hearing aids on. I’ve always had hearing aids since I was 2 years old, so they are comfortable. I feel like I’m content with the full feeling in my ears. Honestly sometimes without hearing aids in my ears feel empty. It’s weird. Really weird. I don’t know how to explain this. I like the full feeling of hearing aids. Anyway- So comfort. I’m honestly comfortable with having hearing aids on. The second reason why is— fun! I will explain more. See I have the bling on them?! Yeh, you can see. They are purple and bedazzled. So, they are fun, I like to express myself with my hearing aids so they are fun, I enjoy them. I also have fun bedazzled hearing aids to show other people, so they can see I’m deaf. And I can voice and speak so if I’m communicating orally, chatting and lip-reading, sometimes people forget or think I’m lying about being Deaf so, hearing aids kind of act like proof. Like hey see?! Not lying, I’m really deaf. That’s in the hearing world. But honestly in the deaf world sometimes people assume I’m hard of hearing if they see I have hearing aids. No, I’m Deaf. It’s pretty simple. So, onto the third reason, well the first two were the main reasons. The third reason is not really, not that essential for me. The third reason is that hearing aids help me pick up some sounds, very faintly for me. Like emergency sounds if they are close or approaching sometimes I can hear them or if a car honks and they are very close I can hear it. It needs to be really loud if I will hear it. So, growing up hearing aids helped me with understanding speech, when I was younger I could. I could hear vocal fluctuations and with lip-reading helped me hear. Now I’m deaf so honestly hearing aids don’t really help me anymore. But there are still some things I can pick up. But really the top reason I use hearing aids are for comfort and bedazzling. So those three things are my reasons why I use hearing aids. Guess if you want please comment down below! Share your personal decision and reasons why you use hearing aids! I’m curious.
