I'm sorry you are not getting the support you need. Yes, hearing loss is a disability. It is not a sign of aging, nor is it a sign of intellectual ineptness or inability. Many hearing aids do not show, so you would not necessarily know if someone in your presence was using them.

I know several musicians who use hearing technology, and are thankful that technology is available to them.

Research shows that untreated hearing loss can lead to depression. Depression can lead to many other problems. You say you are depressed. Are you getting help for that? I hope so.

I encourage you to get hearing help, protect the hearing you have, and find ways to make the adjustments necessary to live a good life. As a bonus, you may even find ways to help others who experience what you are experiencing now.

You can do this.

Thank you, Julie. You are very kind and thoughtful. This is just me; probably can't be helped. Also, it's part of several other problems going on right now. So it's all mixed together. I am a hard worker, but no amount of work solves this kind of thing. That's very frustrating.
