My Blog

I have two topics here:

1. Is it safe to paint your hearing aid (like BTEs) or will that tear up the device? I read somewhere that a lady PAINTED her hearing aids PINK so it will stand out.

2. I was talking to my mother about the colorful hearing aids that we have now instead of the flesh colored ones....and how many adults would wear the colored ones. She told me that adults who wears colorful hearing aids are weird...like they want to tell the world they are deaf. She said it is usually kids who would wear them and that's ok....but adults who wears the colored hearing aids are weirdos.
I thought maybe she's one of the people who are ashamed of hearing aids (she's hearing), and she said it is not a case of being ashamed...it just looks weird.
Know any other hearing people who thinks like this? I don't mind showing off mine since i grew up with hearing aids since age 2. (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Just wants to know your 2 cents. (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Hi Nancy
in response to you post i'm turning 23 in the new year and currently waiting for my new hearing aids which i hope to get in pink i already have silver sparkly molds and love them and believe that i wouldn't be the same person i am today without my hearing loss or hearing aids so i'm proud to wear them and show them off however it does take a degree of confidence to do this especially for adults i think! As for painting hearing aids i don't know for sure but have a feeling that it won't work! ....glad u don't mind showing yours off...are yours colourful too?!
