According to George Jellinek (author of Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis) ‘decline in cognitive function’ is common in m.s. and ‘the ability to make decisions’ can be affected, even in very early stages.
My biggest problem as a student was having great difficulty with exams - revising and retaining information and then formulating answers and getting them completed in a given time was hard. Similarly job interviews etc were a disaster because of the difficulty in responding in a pressure situation. (I know most people find these situations stressful but the problems I had were mega-difficult.)
Apart form that I think my cognitive functioning is o.k. and I don’t think my ability to make decisions has been too badly affected.
Most of the messages on this site are sensible and understandable and I guess most of us know our times tables - how many pence in the pound - how to manage our financial affairs - believe Churchill is doing a great job as PM ! - etc.
Does anyone else feel their cognitive function has declined?
