Myth 3: Hearing instruments are not for me, not yet, anyway.
People who believe they have only slightly impaired hearing often make the mistake of thinking that they don’t have as much to gain from a hearing instrument. Anxiety over the idea of being dependent on a hearing device can play a role as well. It’s a
shame, because this frame of mind causes people to waste years of their lives coping and adapting, slipping gradually into a world of isolation. Eventually they neither remember nor or realize the fuller life they’re missing.
There’s only one way to break through this debilitating myth: short-circuit the mentality
of coping, accepting and avoiding the issue. Ask yourself, who’s older: the person sitting home alone with the TV on full blast, or the person sitting in a restaurant with friends gathered around, fully engaged in the heart of the conversation?
Today’s tiny, discrete hearing instruments can make the difference.
See your hearing care professional (whether it’s an audiologist, hearing aid dispenser or doctor); get a hearing check, and try one of the new, modern hearing instruments. Usually there’s
a 30-day risk-free offer you can take advantage of. The only way to understand what you’re missing is to try these state-of-the art hearing instruments in your own home, your own office and your own daily life. If you’re suffering from isolating
hearing loss, you’ll see how modern hearing technology can help pull you back into the more vibrant life you love, in a way that no adapting or coping can.
