Lissa - I see my uncle often during the week so I sign enough to him that I don't forget. I sign when I talk sometimes tho and more often than not, when I start to sign when I talk, I stop talking. Signing is basically my first language so it's hard sometimes for me not to talk when I sign. I know some asl, mostly it's deaf sign that I know though.
Today I fought tooth and nail trying to find out if insurance would cover my audiologist appointment and HAs. Finally my hubby came home and talked sternly at them and found out that new HAs and Hearing Test IS covered.
So I'm going out tomorrow at 11 am to get my test and hopefully my new HAs.

Does your husband find that people seem to always talk on his bad side? With my HI it seems like people wait until it's a situation when I'm not going to hear them to try and talk to me. Sometimes it drives me mad!
I have some hearing loss on my right side. I also have trouble distinguishing speech because of the cognitive effects of my ME/CFS. The messages get lost between my ears and my brain so I can't make out what sentences mean when I am really tired.
That could be a possibility. When I am relapsing my speech becomes slurred and messed up, I often put words in the wrong order in a sentence or mix up syllables. It could be worth investigating.
How long will you have to wait for your ear moulds to be made?
She said the hearing aid body will be in the next day. But the ear moulds take about a week. So in about 1.5-2 weeks i'll go in there for a fitting in which we'll adjust everything and then I'm good for 2 weeks of wearing them adn getting use to them. and then I'll do another check up after 2 weeks of wearing them
So after much crap has happened. Insurance will not cover HAs because we haven't met a $2500 deductible. SO a friend is sending me her old HA that she doesn't need any longer. I've already cleared it with my Audiologist and as long as the HA works it will work for me. Ordered an ear mould. Will go in next week between Mon-Wed to get everything adjusted and fitted (as long as I can get the money together for it $135.)
Hubby says we'll buy the 2nd hearing aid at tax time when we have extra money to do so. I will probably continue selling items online to try and raise the money before that
