Hi Poll ,
general noise is a real problem for me too , not just the hearing though , it seems to send the sensory symptoms into overdrive , I always thought it was just a concentration thing , but , when you’re missing bits of the conversation too , it just makes it worse !
I sometimes hate to think how I must appear to other folk , and then other times I guess I’ve just got used to not having my finger on the pulse as they say ? well not got used to it to be honest , just tried to get resigned to it
still b***** annoying though isn’t it ? , I’ve had MS about 8 to 9 years , and sometimes kid myself that it’s part of my life , but some far distant sub conscious niggle keeps reminding me that it’s not how I “ever” was at all !!
