Most hearing loss is gradual or subtle, and it gets worse with age. It seems like less of a disability than, say, vision problems. But since wearing glasses for bad vision is more like a fashion statement these days, it is understandable that the same doesn’t seem true for hearing aids for hearing loss. However, there have been many changes in the design of hearing aids that make wearing them less stigmatizing. There are many colors, styles, and sizes that are nearly invisible to choose from.
Waiting is not worth it
Do you fake your hearing abilities? The average person waits 10 years before doing something about their hearing loss. But just getting by with hearing loss is a strain, just like getting by without glasses when you have trouble seeing. It is painful not to be able to read or drive anymore when you can’t see. Conversely, being stubborn about not getting hearing aids will keep you from your favorite sounds in life, like music, movies, and nature.
