#HearingFactFriday: The world is filled with people faking that they can hear fine

Today’s hearing fact isn’t that surprising when you think about it. Most hearing loss is subtle and gradual, worsening in parallel to our aging.

Plus, “getting by” with a little hearing loss is a lot easier than, say, vision impairment. Take driving, for example. Or reading. 

Finally, let’s be honest: fixing bad eyesight with glasses carries no stigma, whereas wearing hearing aids to hear better might — though it’s definitely waning.

Is waiting worth it? 

The question we need to ask ourselves though is, “is waiting (or ‘getting by’) worth it?” Is putting off getting help for hearing worth the hit it takes on our quality of life? Is stubborness worth missing our favorite sounds (insert yours here), lessening our love for music or movies, or isolating us from the people and activities we enjoy most?
