Do I have the beginnings of a problem? Yes, I can't hear anyone speaking unless I ask them to speak a bit louder for me… and I have lost friends because I don't remember things that I've actually done or said.. or even seen with my own eyes… The hearing loss is relatively new to me, but I've been forgetful for years.. I feel and look so normal, but the folks who had known me the longest and best have passed on out of my life, either moving away or dying, etc.. I have been able to make new friends, but at some point they get their feelings hurt by me, let me know it, and then disappear.. I am 76 years old and feel like I'm more like 56 years old.. but I have changed and now I'm more isolated than I've been in my entire life, except for my darling husband..
What's happening to me?!!
