For most people hearing loss happens very slowly over time. You might start to miss the odd word or think someone said one thing when they actually said something else. Your brain is quite clever and is able to guess what has been said but with a hearing loss it sometimes gets it wrong.
You may have to turn the TV up louder than your family would like and even then it is not clear. Most people suffer from a lack of clarity not volume so it can be quite frustrating for all the family if someone is missing words. This will happen to all of us at some point so there is no need to worry.
Book a hearing test as soon as you can and find out what, if anything, you need to do about it!
