Hi guys, I’m 25 and I’ve been diagnosed with RRMS for about five years. I’m a freelance writer and one of my biggest worries is that cognitive issues will eventually effect my ability to write. I had a bit of a panic this morning when I couldn’t think of the word ‘bricolage’ for about 2 minutes. I calmed down after I told myself that it’s not unusual for healthy people to forget words from time to time, and names of French art movements probably isn’t a fair test.
I was wondering if you guys have any tips on keeping normal forgetting straight from cognitive issues? And how do you guys deal with that constant fear of getting worse?
