Becoming the Bionic Woman
However, about eight days into the trial, the hearing aid battery died and I was abruptly thrust back into a world of partial hearing & decreased orientation. Suddenly I felt like an addict that needed to score. I was thinking, “Where can I get a hearing aid battery on a holiday weekend? Will the chemist be open? Will they have the battery I need?” Getting that battery became my number one priority. The shops were closed, so I spent an evening without a working hearing aid. Needless to say, I was strung out.
