3 days ago · How do I chose the right Hearing Aids for hearing loss & tinnitus? in Hearing Loss

@freezerman504
Hello,
Everything you posted are things I've learned over my 45 years of wearing aids.
What you have learned is valuable to other new users and even those who hear fine but don't understand what hearing loss is all about.
Our hearing fluctuates due to many things like stress
,caffeine and climate changes. I have always needed many adjustments and fine tuning.
You can help others and be an advocate for yourself.
Good for you for giving aids a second chance and finding a website that can help you.
If you have any questions or new info to impart, I would love to hear from you .

Hello,

Absolutely you can pick what wine to drink as long as I approve.😉 I do so appreciate someone who loves and
knows their wine. As for dressing for a trip as @gingerw mentioned, I opt for fashionable comfort. If I don’t look good I don’t feel good…probably a little vanity there. Would rather spend more money for one classic outfit that I know I will always love rather than a few pieces that are just okay. You all know you have clothes that you choose all the time over the other ones hangin in your closet. Going to have lunch at the beach now and will let @jakeduck1 know what I ate.

Hi,

Upset stomach is a common side effect. I have taken Preservision for years with Areds2 with no side effects. They do say not to take with milk or dairy products. Could be a combo of the Areds and other medications or vitamins he is taking. I take one Preservision In the am and one in the pm. Too many minerals and vitamins can cause stomach problems so look into whatever else he may be ingesting pill wise or foods…even time of day.

I’m with you on the dark chocolate and the jewelry and only shop for clothes when I need to. But I do spend the money on good quality shoes and sneakers. Your feet are holding up the rest of you. Bad cheap footwear can equal bad backs. I have a bunion on one foot and sometimes it’s hard to find a dressy comfortable shoe. Still have the most comfortable boots and hiking shoes that are 20 years old. Not too many cold days or mountains here in Florida. And I bring my dark chocolate with me when I travel…you never know….

Wow…that’s amazing….go eat the whole 5 lbs if you want . Then I’ll be back so we can trade recipes and I can share some more culinary wonders with you. Glad to see you are your usual (?) old self. I just came back back from Orlando but was fortunate enough to eat at one of my favorite Thai restaurants before I left. Even you would enjoy the food. I will try to find some recipes with less that 3-4 ingredients that will take less than a half hour and won’t offend your delicate obstinate tastebuds. I’m here for ya.
