As part of my rehab since diagnosis 6 months ago, which included physio, occupational therapy etc I also was given a series of sessions with a psychologist, which I enjoyed as it helped me get over the initial impact of suddenly being relient on others for simple day to day functions.
Now I am about 60% physically functional, I am noticing my brain isn't as sharp as it was just 6 months ago.
Where I am noticing it is in traffic where I am not responding as quickly to normal driving situations such as braking etc, and my language skills have also suddenly taken a dive whereby I am having trouble with not only spelling, but with foreign language where I used to be fairly fluent but now have trouble holding any sort of conversations.
I am 65 and it is as if I have suddenly turned 85, with my having slowed down both physically and mentally and now I am even mumbling out loud.
Has any one else noticed a change in their mental well-being?
