Subject: Time to Find Out

<HTML>After quitting my job before they fire me for not listening. (I do listen as hard as I can but I still get it wrong) Ive decided that I need to look into the possibility that I may have something going on. All through School my reports said 'must concentrate', 'Could do better' If I am relaxed and talking to someone one to one, Im fine I can understand everything. If im in a group of people ,in a club or at a bar, I am usually quiet , Its not that im shy or anti-social its just that I cannot understand anything people are saying to me because there is too much noise and distractions.I have a tendancy to withdraw and daydream in these situations which often make people wonder what planet im on but its just a defence and a way of entertaining myself when i cant understand what anyone is saying. And it just becomes easier to avoid getting in a conversation because it is tireing for me and the person who is talking to me. I only heard of CAPD a few years ago. But have always had a suspicion that there may be a problem. Because I know im not stupid but I cant always convince other people like my Boss who just thinks I dont listen. I really want to start dealing with this but have no Idea where to start. I live in Orlando and Im hoping that maybe there is someone else around that might be able to point me in the right direction.</HTML>

<HTML>Please tell me what CAPD is and what information you find out. I understand the struggle that you are having and always thought that it was just a lack of concentration on my part. I too do ok, most of the time, one-on-one, but I can be looking at a person standing right in front of me in a large group and hear sounds coming out of their mouth but not be able to understand most of what they say. Thanks.</HTML>
