Leave it to your family to point out that you're losing it. I know that my husband and adult children can get frustrated with my forgetfulness, spaciness and general confusion but my fuzzy brain downright petrifies me these days. I know that many people struggle with memory and confusion as they age but I suspect that some of my issues are MS related. This disease has already taken so much away from me that these latest cognition issues scare the S--T out of me. I find myself becoming more reticent to ask for clarification or more information especially from my family because they won't hesitate to point out if it's something they've already told me. My grandmother struggled with dementia for years before she passed so I can't help but think that maybe this brain fog is more than MS or getting older but could possibly be something more serious that I've inherited. I've always struggled with concentration so maybe it's as simple as slowing down to really listen when my family tells me something I might need to know. I choose to believe that these latest "brain farts" are manageable because the alternative explanation is just too frightening to accept.
Hello World. This is a blog we created to give any one affected by MS in any way a constructive way to communicate with others going through the same challenges.
