I want to revisit the hearing loss problem. My husband has always had hearing loss but now he really has problems. However, I don't believe it is hearing loss. I'm not sure but I think it has more to do with language and attention and energy. He miss hears everything but has terrible trouble just processing language. I have to make sure I really have his attention. I need to clap my hands and have him look directly at me and speak very very slowly. It is hard to separate what is what. It also changes from moment to moment. It is like the reception is bad, too much static, bad weather in the brain. He does not understand gestures at all and his vision is such a problem. How complicated it all is. Just wondering what others experience with this.
