What you refer to is 'auditory fatigue'. Of course we spend an incredible amount of energy working to hear and decipher what is being said. Background noise is a monster for all of us. It's very easy to just turn out sometimes….which gives people the impression that we aren't paying attention, don't care, or don't 'get it'. I highly recommend learning and practicing basic stress management techniques. Something as simple as rhythmic breathing can help.

I think I've done very well in incorporating stress management techniques into my daily life in order to offset the difficulties that living with hearing loss has posed for me but I'm also forever looking to improve. Thank you for the reminders. 😊
