    What caused your hearing loss and were you wearing a hearing aid before your implant? (Or a different hearing aid previously, seeing as you have put "hearing aid2" as one of your tags?)

    Didn't lose my hearing, never had it -- functioned 37+ years without hearing aids. This is a hearing aid, not an implant -- calling it an implant is a joke with myself, as an SF fan (and particularly a fan of Alastair Reynolds').

    "hearing aid2" must have been a lightroom/flickr uploading glitch.

    So, nothing really special here: just a normal hearing aid for somebody who's discovering she's deafer than she thought!

    To be clear, because I'm aware there is potential for misunderstanding: I have bad hearing -- initially, I was told I was in the zone where hearing aids were optional. Most people around me know I don't hear as well as they'd expect me to, but in everyday life people probably don't know my hearing isn't good. Now that I'm starting to wear the hearing aids I'm realising how bad it really is, and how much I've been compensating (and how well!) until now.
