Q: What is the difference between Sorry, I didn't quite catch that. and Sorry, I couldn't quite catch that. ?
A: Personally it sounds like “didn’t quite catch that” sounds like you heard what the other person said, but missed parts of the conversation. “couldn’t quite catch that” sounds like you knew they were talking but due to something you missed the entire conversation.

You’d be understood both ways though if you’re trying to get someone to repeat something.

I don't engage in any activities to escape my reality. I want to participate in an activity that I like but I don't know what I can do and what I like to do exactly. I don't want to make any excuses but I have slip discs in my neck and back. So I have limits to enjoy all of the activities. I think I should make my body more healthy at first. And then it would be better to look for what I'm going to do.
A: I don't engage in any activities to escape my reality. I want to participate in an activity which I like, but I don't know what I am able to do. I don't want to make excuses but I have slipped discs in my back, therefore I'm limited to only a few activities. I think I should be more physically ready first so I can broaden the activities I can engage in. That way I'd have more options to explore.
