If you find yourself constantly asking people to repeat what they have said to you, it is a good indication that you have a hearing problem that should be diagnosed and treated. Unfortunately, all too many people who could benefit from wearing a hearing instrument shy away from getting one. Most of these individuals fear that they will draw attention to themselves and their hearing deficiency if they wear a hearing instrument. However, the fact is that those who ask people to constantly repeat themselves are drawing more undue attention to themselves than they would with a hearing instrument. In fact, most hearing instruments are so small that they do not attract the attention of others at all.
