Help me get my hearing back. Please help by supporting me in getting hearing aids so that I can do my work as a therapist.

I make my living listening to people. I am a leadership and career consultant and a therapist. And, I have lost most of my hearing in my right ear and a significant amount in my left.

It really slows the flow of attention and conversation when I need stop and say, "I'm sorry, could you repeat that?" several times over the course of a meeting. I mean, I may be old - but not that old! I still have a good 15 years to go in my career. I love my work!

The economy was hard on us - my husband has lost his position and has been having a difficult time trying to replace his income.

I have used the "amplifier" type of hearing device - but, well, unless you have tried them, you have no idea how poorly they work for a conversation. Yikes!

I am looking to get fitted with two real hearing aids. I am a Kaiser member, so I will be able to buy the hearing aids there. While they cover the cost of the hearing exams, I do have to pay for the hearing aids themselves.

So, I would be most appreciative of your help in getting my hearing back.
