Shortly after the incident which permanently damaged my hearing 10 years ago (You can find that story in the "introduce yourself" subforum), I found myself being able to hold conversation without the constant "Repeat that, please" most often if I am able to look at the person's mouth move. If I were to look away for a second some of their words become muffled or completely incomprehensible. Anyway, so I was just wondering if anyone else has found this as a good coping mechanism for severe cases of T, or any other little tidbits of wisdom on living with hearing loss. I still haven't found a way to fix my own voice volume, I am constantly asked to lower my voice when, to me, it sounds like I am at a pretty typical level. It makes me accidentally run over other people's words in conversation, making me come off as being very rude! I hope what I've shared here comes to help someone in a similar situation.
