  1. I decided to share this as a specific topic after posting it in a thread of Bill's. Please excuse the duplication. -------------------------------------------------- This is for all you guys whose hearing is getting marginal, you know, where you are starting to think that maybe it's time to get a hearing aid. I am passing this along from recent experience in the hopes that it will spark some of you into action. If you are losing your hearing and are thinking about getting your hearing checked, please go do something about it! You may not realize - as I did not - if you let your hearing "just get worse" that eventually if it gets to a certain point, NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO, in many cases you will lose it. You will go deaf. If you catch it in time, hearing aids can go a long way toward preventing this. I am not sure how from a medically informed perspective and when I got mine I was in a hurry because I had to immediately take off on a huge cross-country driving trip so I didn't have much time to delve into it. Hearing loss is a big deal. It has a huge impact on the overall quality of your life. In my case, I was right on the edge of going deaf with no way back. I know we are all different and this is not a 100% situation for everyone with acute hearing loss. But please do not let pride, " being too busy" or anything else stop you from looking into it. If your hearing gets to a certain point there may be no helping it. One day last summer, out of the blue, I suddenly decided that enough was enough. I was no longer willing to constantly be saying "what?" to my family and to everyone I knew and I was no longer going to allow myself to be isolated by not being able to hear and participate. On the recommendation of a friend, I went to Costco to shop for hearing aids. I was shocked at how good the guy was at doing the testing and evaluation. He didn't try to shove me into the most expensive pair, he took the time to explain things to me. I cannot tell you what a difference it has made to be able to hear better; to be able to participate in life again and not feel as though I am on the sidelines. And, I have not even used my hearing aids for detecting yet, I am sure that will be another revelation. This is all I could find on the specifics of what I am talking about from a fast search in Google, but this topic is vitally important to look into if your hearing is going. (the italics below are mine) I just reread this and it looks a little like an ad for hearing aids or Costco, but it's not. It is from the heart and it is from experience. All the best... Q: Does my hearing loss progress? While there is no way to know if an individual's hearing will continue to deteriorate, the effects of auditory deprivation can worsen over time. When sound is not stimulating the brain, the potential to "forget" how to hear is great, and is closely related to the length of time the brain goes without stimulation. Usually the longer the patient goes without treatment the more likely it is the brain will forget how to hear and understand speech even after treatment is implemented. These findings suggest that it is important to seek treatment for hearing loss in a timely manner to receive optimal results.
