I enjoy having full use of my five senses. Hearing Aids and glasses assist me in correcting "Mother Nature's" faux pas. Since I am on a fixed budget, batteries are constantly chipping away at it. I enjoy having pleasant conversations with my family and friends and listening to a good movie and being able to understand them all. I can't imagine what it was like in my mother's day when hearing aids were new and expensive and available only to the wealthy.
