Hi. I just got diagosed with this today, after 31 years of not being able to understand half of what is being said to me... Do any of you know anything about this or have any coping ways other than what is on the internet? I'm in a "Now I know why I couldn't ..." stage. I'm not deaf, my brain is just a bit confused. How sweet. . Anyway, I'm a bit stressed right now. Since you all seem pretty good at coming up with good info I figured I would ask you what you think. Thanks, Kelley BTW for those of you that helped my with my term paper, I just turned in my rough draft 21 pages. Thanks a bunch.
