Cognitive ability and CIDP

March 4, 2011 at 2:32 am

🙂 Hi Wendy Louise, I been DX with CIDP and yes at times I do feel that I’ve lost something in my ability to express myself. However consider the stress we’re under and how little is understood concerning this disease. Many of us live with pain and the psychologically impact of constant relapse. That will go a long way to slowing you down a bit. I don’t believe it has anything to do with age, not in your case. You’re too young. It’s really an insidious condition, since as you improve there’s always the relapse waiting to happen. I think these things and too often the indifference of some doctors who don’t take the time to relate to our psychological needs (simply appearing compassionate) throws us back on ourselves with doubt and anxiety. You’d have to be super human not to feel a bit lost at times. But my scrabble score says no; my brain is still functioning. All the best.
