IS it possible that our AEDs slow us down?

it is imposible for me to think fast adn and caorrectly.

My husband will ask me to do something and i either forget or can not do it very fast.

I feel as if everything has slowed me down alot.

Can they do that?

Slow the brain down, so you slow down.

I can not think fast either and have to think in a differently. My thought process is very slow. I have to ask people to repeat what they said or ask them to keep it simple s t upid so I can understand what the yare saying.

My TMJ doc says things so fast I can nit understand him and get all confused.

he asks about my meds and things like that I wtie it down for my sake and his sake and he still goes on confusing me.

My neurologist says htinkgs the right way adn I can understand mim extremly well.

But I am in PHX for now becuase on the 4th of enxt month I have to be dicussing surgery for my right ankle. PT failed so that is what is left.

Yes! Meds have that affect! Plus, my ability to understand some people & not others. Talking Fast goes over my Head. I hate it when that happens when I am watching a Show I like. Can't rewind to be sure I heard them Rite!

Love Candi

Good Luck w/ the Surgery.
