Three Stages of Those with Hearing Loss 


Typically, people with untreated hearing loss go through three stages:

  1. First, they ask people to repeat – and eventually friends say, “Oh never

      mind”.  This is hurtful.

  2. Then, they start faking it by nodding in agreement without knowing to 

      what their agreeing – eventually getting into trouble.  

  3. Finally, they isolate, refusing to attend get-togethers (gatherings, parties,

      weddings, etc.)  We are social beings; we need to socialize.

Please treat your hearing loss.  Thank you!
