    My name is Sharon. I have had a blood test done according to the girl at the desk they are satisfactory. I see my GP om 3rd. There is lot's going wrong. I cannot recall names of different things. I can no longer read because I can't follow a story. I couldn't even tell you what I did yesterday. I make promises and people are getting cross because I don't remember.

    Words that sound the same are used in the wrong ccontext. My typing is appalling now my fingers type and it's a different word I see. I couldn't remember how to play snakes and ladders with my grandchildren. What do I say to the doctor? I don't know, and I am ever so emotional. Any help would be great.

    Hello Younique and welcome to Talking Point.
    Your post explains everything really well. Why not print it out and give it to the doctor when you see him/her?

    I agree plus it might be a good idea to take a family member along who can be there for you when you feel anxious. You shouldn't have to go through this on your own.
