I haven't talked to you in forever!!! Sorry if I have missed posts on the forum
I just wanted to say hi and wish you happy holidays :)
If you need to talk I do check my messages just not the boards much these days so send me a note and I will answer - I promise.
Sorry for the delayed response to your question. You asked if I have any cognitive issues due to my brainstem lesion. I don't have any major problems, but have noticed the occasional problems finding the right word I mean to say, or saying one word when I mean another (yesterday I said "mushroom" when I meant to say "moustache," that type of thing). I also can find it hard to concentrate sometimes; I haven't been able to read a novel from start to finish in ages, I can find myself re-reading the same section over and over but distraction takes over. I don't know if these things are primary symtoms of my MS, ie: directly caused by lesions, or secondary, due to the whole psychological matter of dealing with a chronic illness. I plan to raise it w/ my neuro next week, to get his take.
Thanks for your note! Actually I wrote that journal entry last May 17; this year will be my 12th anniversary. But thanks for the gesture, and I anticipate feeling much better on my 12th anniversary than I did on my 11th!
