When I'm in school it seems as if for the most part I'm ok. I'll still have some issues with short term memory, word retrieval, swtiching letters around as well as numbers....that sort of thing. But that's been with me from the get go since the accident and I'm fairly used to it. There are other issues but sort of hard to discribe and more noticable by me than anyone else. As summer vacation has progressed I've been noticing I'm having more and more issues. The one's above are becoming more pronounced, sometimes my brain just shuts off when someone is talking to me......space case lol, too much information will cause it to do the same whether that is reading, being talked to ect. Not all the time.......but I am struggling with it more. I'm getting overwhelmed more easily. I told easy child since summer started it's like my brain has also decided to take a vacation. lol Maybe the stress of mother in law is contributing too, as I'm finding myself doing/forced to do things for her that I find overwhelming to do for myself.......like bills and balancing her checkbook sort of stuff. It's more than a little disturbing. I can't recall if it happened last summer. Actually, I can't recall most of last summer. Except that we got back into contact with K. Maybe I ought to research this a bit with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)'s.....but I find that I'm not really wanting to. I'd much rather believe this will eventually correct itself. But it's like if I don't keep my brain constantly stimulated and having to work........it stops being able to do it. Huge example of this.............With all the mother in law stuff.........I have my nursing school orientation Aug 7. But I have to be CPR certified, and have my physical before that date so I can turn in the stuff on that date. That went into the black hole of my memory. While gathering up mother in law's bills and paperwork to turn over to sisiter in law (YEA) I stumbled across the paperwork for school that stated all that and my heart stopped. So now I'm trying to get doctor office to squeeze my fanny in for that physical.....and gonna have to get re-certified online as I don't have time for a classroom type thing. If I'd been in school, odds are I wouldn't have "lost" that. Seems like now I have to be hyper focused on something in order to keep it in my brain. I do not multi-task well at all. If sister in law hadn't decided to unload me of the burden of the financial stuff........I'd probably not remembered and not had it done on time. Man that hoovers.
