Here are the top ten articles for the Deafness Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. Frustrations of deafness
We look the same as everyone else. Mostly we act the same as everyone else and because our ‘disability’ is hidden people expect us to react just the same as they do.
2. Hearing assistance
There are many places you can go for assistance and many things you can do to help you hear better. These will let you know you are not alone and help you enjoy life more.
3. Deaf and hearing on an aeroplane
Travelling on an aeroplane is fraught with frustration because of the often long time seated in very cramped conditions. Listening to movies is one way to while away the time. But if you can't hear...
4. Hearing and balance
Our ears not only channel sound into our cochlea and then to the brain so we can understand noise, they also play an important role in allowing us to stand upright – to keep our balance.
5. Pregnancy and Hearing loss
Many women report a change in their hearing during pregnancy. Is there a link between pregnancy and hearing loss?
6. Questions about a Cochlear Implant?
I frequently get asked questions about Cochlear Implants. I am only a Cochlear Implantee and do not have access clinical statistics but I do hear/read a lot of anecdotal stories and it is these experiences I share here. The most common comment I read is “I wish I’d done it sooner.”
7. The benefits of music on our hearing
The benefits of music are far greater than the simple enjoyment of a beautiful sound. Music stimulates our brains in many ways – even if we can’t hear it the way we would like.
8. Features of Modern Hearing Aids
When I wore hearing aids all they did for me was make the sound louder. This helped a little in some circumstances. These days with better technologies the outcomes of wearing a hearing aid are much better.
9. How hearing loss affects people
The way you respond to your hearing loss will depend on your stage of life, your personality, the way you deal with set-backs and your support group; family, friends, colleagues. It is an individual response and not everyone is affected, nor deals with the changes in the same way.
10. When will I hear with my Cochlear Implant?
Many of us haven't heard for years. We can't get in touch with what it might be like to hear without the constant need for lip reading, watching people, being extra alert and feeling exhausted most of the time. So when will I hear with my Cochlear Implant?
