My hearing aid story ❤️

“So apparently I don’t know if I was born deaf on my right ear, I started noticing I can only ear with my left ear about 7yrs old or so.


Naive me since then I have always thought we always hear with one ear, sometimes I would just be talking to myself asking myself questions I have no answers to, from day one I have been a quite type I hardly communicate with people except my close friends.


Only few knew I can’t hear on my right ear because it wasn’t obvious.

So on this faithful day, I and my late mum were sitting on a long bench outside, I think I was 10yrs then, so I was resting my head on her laps because I was in a sleeping position.

Boom maami (as we call her) had this wristwatch and she put it on my right ear to hear if it was still working, I told her to put it on my left ear she asked me why, I told her I can’t hear with my right ear she was shocked 😳 I could see her reaction on her face. Me I told her I have always thought we hear with one ear 🤣.

I think that was the last time we discussed about my ears. Wo I can’t even blame her for not even making moves then, because we were even struggling as a family couple with the fact that she was also sick.

So as I was growing older I noticed I was loosing my balancing and I always feel dizzy, mumu me I thought it was village people ooo.


Fast forward to February this year I went to cover an event in Akwa Ibom as a photographer.


I met Itoro Udosen, she advise me to go to general hospital and meet a doctor.


I went to hospital on Monday without waiting, I was in lasuth, It wasn’t easy but I finally met a family doctor, she gave me a note to meet an ENT (ear, nose & throat) Doctor, that was when my journey began.


From meeting the doctor to doing series of earring test, to doing brain mri scan to buying drugs.

So the brain mri scan revealed I cannot hear with my right ear until I use hearing aid.


I was referred to do hearing aid trial, on the 15th of November 2021, was the first time I was able to communicate with my right ear. I was very happy that day.


Boom the woman said to get digital hearing aid cost is 300,000 omo fear enter my body 🤣

My own is that I must get it ooo.

So I wrote an SOS message to some people I know that can help out, telling them I have 150k at hand to add to the money. I got 181,000 in total from 4 people that turned up for me.


Mind you many people read my message without even replying me 😭 omo I felt bad that day ooo.


I have spent close to 500,000 already to achieve this.


This is my day 2 of using the hearing aid.

Walahi I can confidently say my balancing is coming back to normal.

Me that can’t even gbe body before because of fear of falling down, I can now dance 😁.

Dizziness has disappeared fiam.


I am grateful to God and people that turn up for me.
