I'm practically deaf only 18 percent out of 100 left. I'm late deafened. This condition affects my life far more than any of my conditions. It's terribly frustrating living in a hearing world, and being so limited. I must Rely on others to hear for me. I have bad days and level days as I call them. Anyone else unable to hear?
Progressive hearing loss: I'm practically deaf... - Hearing Link
Hi, I too lost a lot of my hearing from both ears so suddenly with my initial flair of GPA. Unfortunately I wasn't treated at the time with anything but painkillers so the hearing has gone for good. I have had three lots of grommets inserted since which are amazing while they last and am now scheduled for bilateral T tube grommets which hopefully will last longer. In the meantime I rely on hearing aids which are an asset to me at the moment. Have you been offered anything to help you? I sympathize greatly with you - it seems such a solitary life when you can't get involved in things. Let me know how you get on. Ann x
