Emily C. Posted May 25, 2018 Report Share Posted May 25, 2018 Hey!! So... um... I guess I need to introduce myself, if I'm gonna plunge into being on here for the info, company, and craziness! I'm Emily, a 30-something geek from Ohio, and I've had a moderate-to-severe loss since I was a kid. Thankfully, my sudden loss wasn't so bad that I couldn't stay mainstreamed and aids helped, among other things. Unfortunately, the past five or so years has seen a very gradual steady decline for the first time, which sucks. To the point where implants were recommended, which both fascinated me (only vaguely aware of since didn't bother to keep up on a lot of that stuff in the non-hearing world), and freaked out! Ha... seriously. I've been on-again off-again with checking out my options, reading up like crazy, talking to people, going to appointments and a nearby info meeting in Cincinnati, then stalling again for quite some time. Finally, thanks to wonderfully helpful reps, and becoming slowly ok with it since I want to hear badly (it makes working in retail difficult!), I'm doing it! The really hard decision ironically wasn't choosing to do it... it was choosing which brand, as all of you know! ;D But now I feel (mostly) ready and nervously excited with Med-El, thanks to some of it's unique features, and figured the next step is join you guys while I await word of date and insurance (trying not to get myself worried about _that_ part going smoothly too). So..... hi! ;D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
