This is properly mental. My wife just went for hearing tests and found out she needs hearing aids.
Part of that interaction with our health service was her literally being given 2 hearing aids.
The biggest issue here being that she was freaking out about how they would make her look.
Luckily she’s a human being and looks gorgeous all the time, so her worries were purely psychological.
But it fucks me in the face to imagine how insanely money can involve itself in this kinda situation (that’s rightfully incredibly private and personal).
She has life time hearing aids and life time access to batteries for her hearing aids. All for free, for life.
America, bro, come on, this shit ain’t difficult.
