Always High on life with Famous Celebrities

Posted by maaniverma @maaniverma, Feb 9 6:36am

Being myself going through single side deafness I always wanted to know how others who are going through it cope up with it so I always google it out and get to know about famous celebrities like Rob Lowe, Jane Lynch, Mr. Olympia Louis ferrigno.
Inspite of having issues they are always high on their life.
Is anyone of you fan of above mentioned famous personalities??

Rob Lowe is SSD from birth but still don't use any implants or hearing aids 😮 at age of 56. I always wonder how he manage around his surrounding so well without any hearing gadgets??

@maaniverma Maybe you could find a way to get a note to your celebrities (I don't know them) asking them your question! So much for my light hearted (but serious) response. You will get more immediately practical responses from others on this list. Good Luck!

I am sure the wonderful uses lip reading, whether class-learned or self taught. He would know the strategies to use to assist his deaf ear (like where to sit, stand or what areas in a setting to avoid). He would also know enhanced listening. I teach a whole chapter on that in Lesson 2 of my soon to be released free Practical Lip Reading, co-sponsored by the Treasure Coast Chapter,
HLAA and the Fort Pierce Lions Club. One big way to help communities with hearing loss.
Learning how to really listen is helpful to anyone, but especially those who are hearing challenged. He would be well-tuned to the facial expressions and body language of others.

One thing he and others with SSHL should be very mindful of is balance. People with unassisted hearing loss are 3X more likely to fall. By not getting help for the deaf ear, he is inviting dementia up to 7 years early, as well. Untreated hearing loss presents health problems beyond the ears

A great deal depends on how profound the single sided deafness is. Many times we lump a lot of things together that are not the same. What do we mean by 'deafness'?

I think if anyone has profound hearing loss above 90 db than it means you cannot hear from that ear. It doesn't matter if anyone has 100 db hearing loss or 110 db.

I think you are right he may use all sort of communication not only voice. I am interested to know more about your book for lip reading. Can you share more details?

Thanks, I don't think I can get in contact with famous personalities . As they are too famous and busy people in their lives. If you know a way than please tell me.

He could be evaluated for a cochlear implant. He could use assisting listening devices and phone apps like Live Transcribe or Otter
