Are there any written transcripts of these meetings. I wanted to go to the Tinnitus one but something else came up.

I hear a furnace running all of the time. My doctor told me that it was Tinnitus and all I could do was to get used to it. At least I quit looking for where the sound was coming from.

As to the phones, I have had one of the phones from the Deaf and Hearing Services in Leesburg for many years. My problem with the phone is that my hearing aids keep changing channels when I hold the receiver up to my head. I took my phone back to them and got one with a speakerphone option. Now I do not have any problems having a conversation on the telephone.

Hopefully, they will cover this at the meeting.
