hi, I can completely identify with this and have been having difficulty with same for quiet a long time. It varies as to how bad it can get but lately it's having terrible effects on my job and i find customers getting annoyed with me.
I haven't mentioned it to my doctor yet as i don;t know what he'll say as i recently only confided in him how anxious and depressed i can get about the whole thing.
even though i have always beed sporty i never did very well as i found it hard to interpret rules, referees and routes for races etc. I failed college due to it as well. Sometimes i think i actually have a mild learning disability.
I had to tell the pharmacist at work yesterday that i genuienely didn't understand what she was saying and i wasn't trying to be awkward with her. I have great difficulty dialling phone numbers that are written down or trying to write what someone is saying.
I know this isn't of much help to you, only to say that i know how you feel and don't know whether it's fibro related or not. I'm going to be seeing a person mext week that can hopefully help me underestand it.
Take care, boo
I'm sorry to hear you are having this trouble...but I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one. I thought it was just me getting older (39) :) My children get so aggravated at me because I have to ask them to repeat things, and others say something and I think I got it, then I have to have it repeated to make sure. It sure is annoying. I haven't found a solution yet, but as I said before, I'm happy I'm not alone. :)
