Hi! I'm new here, but I'd like to apologize on behalf of all of the family members who have sometimes been guilty of the comments or actions you've mentioned. I don't have Meniere's, but my wife does. In fact, she woke up dizzy this morning and is still in bed. She has it in both ears and uses hearing aids. I have been known to talk to her while walking away and yelling when she asked me what I said for the third time. I keep telling myself that I'll never do that again and, although not as often as before, I'm still guilty once in awhile. I've also noticed that when we're together, some people do talk to me more than her once they discover she has a hearing impairment. That bothers me too, especially if we're discussing her. I usually try to get her involved in the conversation by asking her a question. When she responds they usually include her a bit more and I hope that it makes her feel less uncomfortable. This is a great thread, keep it going. For those of us without MM, the comments will give us an idea on how we can be more considerate.
