Anyone here have a problem with hearing loss? I have a moderate hearing loss and I can honestly say that it has attributed much to my SAD and loneliness. I wear hearing aids and they're great, but I still have trouble some times. My hearing problems have attributed to a lot of horrible agonizing moments where i mishear someone or keep having to say "what" to a person who simply isn't talking loud enough. Needless to say it's given my self confidence a shellacking. I have hearing aids which are the latest thing and are very HD but I still have problems from time to time. I find my self avoiding people when walking in hallways because I simply don't want to talk to them and risk an awkward moment with my hearing.
