I am much the same as Ali, just cannot seem to remember the simplest of words when I am speaking. Yesterday it was the screens on the windows, just couldn’t remember what they were called. I have always been an excellent speller (used to be an English teacher), & now have to ask my husband how to spell many words. I am worse when I am tired, but with CIDP that seems to be much of the time. I don’t even like talking on the phone past 7:00 PM for that very reason. I find that when I read a book, I can’t remember it like I used to be able to, even the newspaper, but I am better than I was 5 years ago about these things.
