With PPMS, my first symptom was memory loss, way before dx of MS. My concentration became weaker, attention began to wane. Nowadays, these things have escalated. Everything takes ages…even getting out of the bath takes 10 minutes…just getting out of the bath! I forget everything I’ve read, heard, done, bought very quickly. This creates many problems for other people as they constantly repeat they told me, took me, saw me. I’m still reading a book I downloaded last year…having to go back several chapters every time. I don’t mine, because it’s like reading a new book.
Now I used incorrect words, names and places…I told my sister something our brother did…but I meant my boss. Things like this lead to all sorts of problems.
A few years ago, I took a test with a neuro psychologist, it took hours. When I had a copy of her report it was full of inaccuracies and I was disgusted with her inability to do her job. It was before MS dx.
I’ve read and heard about CBT but no-one has explained exactly what it is, does anyone have any ideas?
