I’ve been rather tired and stressed out lately, a life not going as you would like it to go thing. I’ve noticed that I can’t hear very well when I’m like this. I can still hear the sounds through my implant but my brain sometimes just can’t seem to make out what the words are. Something similar happened I when I was lipreading more with hearing aids but it seems much more alarming when it happens now. I suppose that now the expectations are greater and the difference between what I can understand normally and what I can understand when “tired” is greater.
Anyway it sucks.
