It became increasingly difficult to heard in meetings and with changes in the position, I started working from home for new clients. I do have to wear a earphones when on the mobile to ensure I can hear the conversation - and to have hands free for typing. It's working out nicely for me - no commute!

I think I'd rather have the commute than to have lost my hearing.

I retired three years ahead of schedule. The frustrations finally helped me make the decision. I used to be able to fill in my hearing by reading lips, but the last team I worked with had a lot of people with thick Indian accents. They were lost on me completely in meetings.

I have had to adapt in my career , lby using sign language , dictaphone in meetings , let people aware that they need to be facing me as that will make it a bit easier for me to still be able to do my job to the best of my ability
