So here we are a few months down the line and feeling quite the expert in hearing aids and aftercare! 

My new ReSound smart hearing aids have done so much for me and have without a doubt given me a far better quality of life that’s for sure which along with it brings a new found confidence. 

For anybody who is deaf blind you’ll know where I’m coming from when I say that winter can make you a prisoner in your own home, the long dark days are so challenging from when the clocks go back until they spring forward.  This winter I’ve found myself out and about a lot more with Frankie in the dark .  I feel a new sense of being at peace with myself, I feel more relaxed to be out and about because I can hear what is going on around me even though I cannot see it.  I genuinely feel so much safer.  My ears are defiantly helping to compensate for my vision loss. 

I really cannot thank GN Hearing, The Hearing Clinic, Glasgow and the Molly Watt Trust enough. You are all making a huge difference.
