I've been poked and prodded some more, and I now have an appointment for assessment/fitting to get my first pair of heading aids. And... I'm anxious as hell.

Some of it is how I grew up - my mother was in denial about my hearing issues so even having daily experience of things like struggling to follow teachers, and even now when I've been told by multiple professionals that I have scarring and a hole in my ears, I still feel like I'm making a fuss over nothing.

But just in general it feels like such a big thing. Anyone else have this when they got their first hearing aids?

I'm also looking for advice/tips. So far all I know is that they'll be behind-the-ear aids (NHS means limited options, I don't know any more specific than that yet.) Does anyone have any advice they've been given that helps? Anything you wish you'd been told when you started wearing them?
