So in the past couple of years, I have noticed that I really struggle to listen to someone in an environment with a lot of background noise. This can isolate me socially a little, as I can't engage in conversations with my friends at times. Also, in these environments, I constantly seem to need words repeated to me before I can process them, and sometimes it can take me a couple of seconds to process words, often mishearing. I seem to be fine in quiet environments, but my friends are convinced that I'm hard of hearing, however I'm not too sure about this, it seems to me to be more of a processing issue. I don't know what to do, I have found that I appear with some symptoms of ADHD (inattentive subtype) or could it potentially be APD? Thanks
