Don't leave your hearing loss untreated
Hearing loss also has an effect on not only you (probably more than you are aware of) but also those around you.
From early on in life our brain learns, collects and stores sound pictures to help us get an immediate picture of a situation.
You probably haven't even noticed that you have ceased hearing i.e. the sound of birds chirping, the wind blowing, the leaves rustling and many other sounds.
