@raykraemer Yes, hearing loss is often not recognized as a "disability." The reason may be that it is associated with old age, and old folks are freely the butt of jokes (granny, old guy, eh? what'ed you say? etc.) Remember, the youth culture is dominant. Over 40 = over the hill. Not to mention over 70.

@jshdma– This 74 year old grammy can vouch for your words. I wish I had even one dime for the times I've had to say, "s'cuse me?"
