Hearing loss can affect us in different ways
No two people’s experience of hearing loss are exactly the same. The physical and mental symptoms vary for each individual, often in accordance with the severity or type of hearing loss. For some people, their hearing loss can be very sudden and shocking. Some people are simply born with reduced hearing and others experience a slow and subtle decline. In addition, some individuals experience further symptoms such as unusual sounds inside the ear, a frequent spinning sensation or earache.
It’s important that we never underestimate the mental and emotional impact of experiencing hearing loss. As people struggle to communicate and stay connected to the world around them, there is a tendency to become isolated. A lack of confidence and low self-esteem can easily cause people to avoid talking about their problems and worries. That’s why we feel it is so important that you have someone to talk to and answer your questions. If you identify with this, please contact us today so we can help you reconnect.
