People often ask me, “How did you know you had a hearing loss?” and it is a harder question to answer than you might expect. Hearing loss often sneaks up on you gradually so the signs are easy to miss. It may seem that everyone has simultaneously decided to start mumbling. Or you no longer hear the punch line of jokes. Or you miss important details in meetings. Or you start to avoid socializing or other activities that you like for fear of not being able to participate fully. If some of these things ring true, it is probably time for a hearing test.
