I live alone so I only need to wear my hearing aids when my family come to visit.
I don't want to hear all the sounds in my house, so I just wear my hearing aids once a week when I go shopping.
If I wear my hearing aids regularly I will learn to ignore background sounds that aren't important.
It's too hard for me to hear in the local restaurant now, so I won't go out to lunch with my friends.
If I keep practising listening with my hearing aid, my understanding of what people say in noisy surroundings will improve. However it may take some time.
I will only wear my hearing aids when I can be bothered.
