First Impressions of Resound Hearing Aids

I got hearing aids yesterday! How bizarre is that?? I’ve always had hearing issues ever since I was a little girl, but I didn’t know for sure if it was an actual problem or if I was making it all up in my head.  Then I got a hearing test done at Costco when I […]
