That’s how long until I get my hearing aids. Unfortunately, I did get a call yesterday letting me know that my model does not come in blue, so I had to scramble to pick another color. The choices aren’t great – black, dark silver, medium silver, light silver, terra cotta, beige, and brown. I almost went for the terra cotta, but my anti-try-to-make-it-blend-in side kicked in and I went with the medium silver.
I wish I could say I’m super excited, but truth be told, I’ve been too busy with work, overwhelmed with emotional stuff and otherwise too preoccupied to think much about it. Maybe that’s a good thing, since I’m pretty scared. I am worried they will bother me, because I can’t wear a headband for very long before it starts to hurt behind my ears. I am concerned my glasses will bump them. I am worried my incessant pushing of my hair behind my ears means I’m going to knock them out. I’m worried that I will forget I have them in and get into the shower. I am worried I will have trouble using them. I am worried people will look at me funny.
I guess, then, it’s a good thing I’ve had too much going on to think about it much.
