> Okay, Mitch, I know now what your problem is. You're weird - just like me, that's why I recognise it so well. I thought at one time I might've had CAPD but while I have trouble following people talking, it's not CAPD. I can hear singing & talking in my head in other's voices too, if I know them well. Sometimes at night when I'm falling asleep, I can hear snatches of conversation in these other voices. I figure my brain's replaying audio memories.
> Even though I have trouble keeping track of audio memories, I can still listen to more than one conversation at a time & keep track of what's said, & respond to both, if necessary but still can't remember them after a short period of time. But then I can't remember most conversations even when I really try.
> I bet a lot of these problems that we have have much to do with the time frame that environmental poisons affect us during fetal development - at what stage the brain is developing in utero. Just a theory of mine. (Remember John Cleese in a Monty Python skit as a plain female scientist going on about 'her' theory of dinosaurs? Every time I say 'theory', that skit leaps into my head.)

Thanks!, I get statements from people I work with like: "You are too weird for the world", "Get a Belltone!", stuff like that, but... I can usually get them to chuckle quite a bit so that makes it OK. Some of the stuff I *think* that I hear them say really gets them going. It has been so long since Python watching-I used to watch it religiously as a kid. If I "saw" the episode it would probably click. Back to the meds/CAPD stuff: There is one very very interesting thing amongst the prominent symtpoms and that is a sound lateralization thing (the ability to detect/pinpoint where a particular sound is coming from. I have been aware of this *transient* problem for some time. Sound just seems to be coming from everywhere at times. There have been two situations with medications where music was coming straight out of the speakers and it felt perfectly "directional"-especially voice/lyrical stuff. One was when I was taking Adderall, and the other was when I combined Celexa (tiny dose) with Pergolide (a tiny dose of a DA agonist). According to the lit on CAPD you have to have enough neurotransmitter in the temporal lobes to get the processing done. Also, my "ADHD" improves in a direct correlation with my ability to listen and understand spoken speech and process it with working memory. Hmmm.
