I am too adjusting to late deafness, only these Last 2 weeks i have been Having Trouble understanding. I have APD and have proberly have been misdiagnosed because it's getting worse. My dad is certain in his Head, that it is just the APD and accuses me of not Listening properly and i get very annoyed. I tried to tell him, it's more than just that and he Said, "it'll go away in it's own time" i think he thinks i have an obsession with being deaf. Even when i was struggling to hear him at the other end of the dinner table and when my brother turned to my dad and started whispering. I can't tell my dad that i am going deaf because he won't Believe me. It's right there and obvious, why won't he pick up on it, just because i already have a "diagnosis"
