I’ve just had my first set of HA’s at the age of 39. I’ve had issues with my hearing since being a child and have had to admit to myself that I need the help to hear clearly.
Since collecting them on Tuesday I’ve felt really overwelmed and emotional. I’ve never had ‘proper’ hearing and now the world is so loud and distracting. I know I have to persevere and that it will get better but I kind of wish I could just go back to the quiet I’ve always had. I want to be able to hear but not EVERYTHING. My colleagues are trying to be supportive but their whispering and speaking in quiet voices just makes me feel even worse.
Is this a normal response or am I just being hypersensitive?
