The decision is finally made
So you have finally made the decision to do something about it. For several years now, you have been finding yourself saying "huh?", hearing more and more complaints from family and friends about having the TV turned up too loud and getting in arguments with a loved one because they mumble all the time while they are accusing you of "selective hearing."
It took you a long time to get to this point. Now you have set an appointment to get your hearing checked and you are starting to second-guess yourself. "What if I don't have a hearing loss and I am just wasting their time?" "How much is this going to cost?" "Why does the appointment take so long?" "What if they tell me I DO need hearing aids...what style should I get? Do they still look and squeal like the ones my parents had?"
