Over Coming Deafness

When a person has lost his or her hearing, it can be very stressful for them. They worry about how they will adjust to their new lifestyle, they are unhappy, because they are unable to hear the sounds of the birds, the wind and more. They look at the Television and wish the sound could travel to their ears, but all they receive is a still silent. They look at others with envy, when they see them having a good time chatting on their phones. Being deaf is no fun, but one can make the most of it, by accepting it as a part of life and move on.

Some individual, spend thousands of dollars on renowned specialist because they were advised that the Doctor would be able to help them to recover their lost hearing. However, not all cases are successful, because it depends on the nature and cause of the issues. While there are a few who will accept it, and move on with their lives, others will fall into despair. They will withdraw from their friends and families, and spend their time by themselves, all because they feel so different.

Deafness can strike suddenly upon anyone, anywhere in the world at any hour of the day, and it is like, you will be able to hear today and unable to hear tomorrow. It is similar, to be outside, and then the rain pours down suddenly when we were not expecting it. Today there are 360 million people in various Countries, who are suffering from hearing losses, according to the World Health Organization statics of 2012. In the United State, there are about 36 million Americans, who are suffering from hearing losses.

There are many ways that a person can lose their hearing, however, the most common ways are:

• Loud Noise – Avoid Loud Noises as much as possible, and limit the number of exposures, that you are exposed to.

• Hereditary Disorder – If any member of your family, suffers from hearing losses, it is best for you to visit your doctor for a hearing test, as a prevention.

• Chemical Exposure – Do not smoke, and avoid breathing secondhand smoke, because the noise and smoke exposure can be a bad combination. Some medication can cause a side effect, and product hearing losses, so talk with your doctor about any prescription that you are currently taking.

• Disease – Such as Otosclerosis, Ménière's disease, Autoimmune inner ear disease, and Otitis media they are responsible for some cases of hearing losses and should be treated by a doctor.

• Ear Wax – Use an “At-Home Irrigation Kit”, to soften “Ear Wax”, and wash it out from your ear. Do not use a cotton swab, because it may push the wax deeper in your ears.

Deafness are categorized in groups as Conductive Deafness, Nerve Deafness, Congenial Deafness (Deaf at birth), Adventitious Deafness (Occurs after birth) Losing one hearing, is a very disturbing experience for many, however, it doesn't mean that their life is over. When I lost my hearing at nearly seven years old, I become withdrawn and sulky and as a result, I sported a vexing expression on my face. This placed a strain on my eye muscles, and as a result, I started to wear glasses.

If at any time today or in the future, you discover that you don't hear properly, the best recommendation, is for you to visit your doctor, and he or she will give you a check up, then apply the proper prescription, or refer you to a Specialist. If your Doctor looks at you with a sad face and extend his hand out, then mumbles, "there is no hope", do not be distressed. Just accept it and move on with your life. We can either, make the most of ourselves, or destroy ourselves. When life hands us a “lemon”, we should use it to make, “lemonade”.

Here is a bit of toughening up exercise, that you can use to overcome the issues of deafness. I have used them, for years and they have served me well.

(1) Be mentally strong, by reminding yourself that you are a Great person, next to “God” above. Remember the good book said that “God” made man in his own image.

(2) Forget the word impossible, because it is not true. Apply the concepts of the principles of "I can do it", about every issue that you undertake.

(3) Be relaxed and face others, and looking them in their eyes, whenever, you speak. Do not be timid in their presence.

(4) We should always be respectful to others, wherever we are, because when we show respect to others, they will extend the same courtesy to us in return.

(5) It as been said that a smile, open doors for others, then we should display a smile when necessary.

(6) Spend some time alone, and have a positive conversation with yourself, in front of a mirror. Make comments such as; (your name), meet (your name), a very important person, (your name), you are the best, (your name), you are very handsome, I am feeling on top of the world.

(7) Read positive books, that will help to improve your mental capacity, such as "The Magic of Thinking Big by David Joseph Schwartz, PhD.". This book is sold on, “Amazon”, the popular online book merchant.

(8) Visit your Doctor for an ear check up at least once or twice a year, to ensure that your hearing is working properly.

If you make these concepts a part of your daily habits, you will not feel the need to spend your time in depression or despair.

There are a number of famous people, who have and are experiencing hearing losses today, and they consist of a former United State President, Actors and people from all walk of life. So do not let the issues of deafness bring you down, just rise above it and continue to live life.

I wish you all prosperity and success. Cheers!

Very heart-felt and informative article Andrew... I hadn't realized that you lost your hearing at the age of seven... that's awfully young, but I suppose it's equally hard at any age... since I only know you through the written word online, I forget about your hearing impairment because you "hear" everything I write...
