Intermittent hearing – Michael’s story

Jun 3, 2016

Garage-Aug-14My hearing impairment is complicated by a mild form of Meniere’s disease, and a major challenge is the rapid changing in hearing levels due to varying pressure in my head and ears.

In small groups or in meetings, or talking in a crowded room, what starts as a clear conversation may rapidly become like hearing a foreign language.
The sight of my hearing aids sometimes signals to those talking that additional clarity would be helpful, but it is not always a simple matter to signal that I have lost the drift. An accent will often complicate matters further.
