With age related hearing loss (presbyacusis) it is difficult to admit that your body is not as it once was.
Nobody wants to wear hearing aids, what you want to do is to hear well. Unfortunately, just like your eyes, sometimes you need help.
If you avoid socialising with friends and family because of your hearing, then there’s a good chance that they may also avoid you, as it is just as tiresome for them to repeat themselves as it is for you to ask them to repeat themselves.
If you need hearing aids and avoid them because of the fear of people knowing you have a hearing loss; then the only person you will be kidding is yourself.
Hearing is precious, words and sounds have power, and if misinterpreted can be dangerous and also cause unnecessary mistakes that can cause relationship problems with friends, family and loved ones.
Unfortunately, ignoring your hearing loss will not make it go away and if anything it may become worse over time.
This day and age, there is no reason not to take action with discreet designs and the amazing up-to-date technology and sound quality. It may be time for you to be brave and take control of your hearing. After all our hearing is what connects us with the world and people around us, allowing you to enjoy the intonation in a friend, family or loved ones voice.
