I can't hear. When you are talking to me in a quiet room with my undivided attention, I can hear you. But dare put the television on and I might miss a word or two. Or if you put me in a public area. It's not that I can't hear, but that I can't focus. This is the number one reason I cannot make eye contact with people: I'm concentrating on them and not another sound or conversation. Listen, I'm very smart. This is just me either still recovering from being sick or everyone just getting loud all of a sudden.
