How do I wake up on time if I can't hear the alarm clock?

 For a while I have tried setting the volume on my alarm clock at the top volume, hoping I would hear it.   But with my hearing aids off, it was very hard for me to hear it as soon as it went off.   It would be about ten to 20 minutes until I would hear a faint sound in the background then I would wake up, sometimes I wouldn't hear it at all.  But it would wake up my daughter constantly instead of me, and she would come running into my room yelling turn that thing off!  It's too loud and you woke up everyone in the whole building!    And I started to feel bad about that as I wouldn't want anyone to wake me up if I didn't have to be up early.     Now I am using a an alarm clock with a vibrator that I put under my pillow that works very well, and it gets me up right on time.


  1. As a suggestion, I was going to say put your mobile phone under your pillow at night and use the vibrate mode as it might get you up, but you suggested an alarm clock which is even better :)

  2. That is a good idea, I have never even thought of using my phone as a vibrating alarm clock, till now. It will come in handy when I am not at home to use it as an alarm. :)


I would love to hear your comments:
