Have I actually gotten better at managing my auditory processing stuff? Or is it just that I have a better idea of how to have conversations? I’m not sure which thing has improved.
I suspect that being aware of the auditory processing stuff as a potential problem and thing to work around is helpful in itself, even if I’m not actually getting better at hearing, or even trying to accomodate it more (e.g. by not sitting right next to the speakers like I did tonight.) It’s like… I know that I can have a conversation, and I know where to direct my efforts to try to have one, instead of giving up.
