“I’ve had a hearing loss since I was 20. Through the years my hearing declined so much that in 2010 I received a cochlear implant. Today I hear in the average range, ‘Yahoo!’

“Through the years I was embarrassed about my hearing loss, and I seldom told people about it. If I didn’t hear what someone said, I was much more likely to “fake it” than ask them to speak to me in such a way that I could hear them. Consequently, speaking to people became difficult and painful. I dropped out of more and more social situations, became isolated, and depressed.

“But at one point, I stopped and asked myself, “Why don’t I just tell people I have a hearing loss and let them know how they can talk to me so I could hear them better?” After all, people talk to me so that I hear them, not so that I give the right facial expressions.

“I realized that I needed to change my thinking and be clear that there is nothing to be embarrassed about. Out of these thoughts came the Hearing Loss Revolution and the Nine Guiding Principles.”
