Some of you may have a true hearing loss. You should be checked out by a good audiologist. If it is a loss, hearing aids could bring your hearing back up to nearly perfect.
I have autoimmune inner ear disease. When I first started losing my hearing it was like how you are describing it. I thought my husband was mumbling when speaking to me. As it progressed, I went to the doctor and got the diagnosis and some hearing aids. The aids brought my hearing back up to 96% and I was thrilled...but not for long. Because of my hearing illness, my hearing dropped off the charts and now I'm profoundly deaf in the high ranges and 96% of speech is made up of high sounds. I can hear people talking to me but I can't understand what they are saying. It is like they are speaking a foreign language. Lip reading helps.
But, if you have a normal type hearing loss, I urge you to get hearing aids. It makes a world of difference. I really wish my hearing aids could really help me but my hearing is too far gone. Don't miss a single sound because of vanity, either! It's not worth it.
