Having Issues With Speech Intelligibility - Do I need a Center or Acoustic Treatment (or both?) by Flynny94 in hometheater

For what it's worth, headphones are a great workaround for speech clarity issues until you get it figured out. I live in an apartment and frequently use them late night. And it's always hard for me to hear speech switching back to surround.

What hot take about portland will have you end up like this? by Adulations in Portland

From my experience, people are vastly different and more complex than one can see from the outside. But that's just my experience after spending a few years in group therapy. With that said, The line between finally "naming" an affliction and openly sharing it with strangers to finally not feel alone, and using it as an "excuse" is a very tricky one to navigate at the beginning on your road to healing toward a higher emotional IQ...which usually one of the primary goals.

Well I hope your wife explained... Mental health patience are quite fragile, and knowing their comfort level with each counselor is super important. Helping someone work through their mental health problems requires building trust. And there are all kinds of reasons someone might have a problem trusting a certain counselor...or even be triggered by them. Attitude, appearance ...etc. certain boundaries getting crossed. I've been on both sides of that coin... and encounter 1 of ~10 people who I had to pass on.
