Sudden onset hearing loss – Donna’s story
Life can be unpredictable.
I had studied and worked hard for the last 5 years to get a level of attainment l was happy with, then overnight my life changed.
I wasn’t born with an impairment but after waking one morning l woke with severe bilateral hearing loss and a whole range of other symptoms.
I now have to adjust to the impact of hearing loss with communication, work, resources available, difficulty in early diagnosis, costs and wearing a hearing aid.
I am in my mid 50’s, my life changed in the space of a few hours, yours can too.
