I'm sorry you are having this problem, I have had it now for a long time. Iwas trying to do computer work, simple things and forgot what compuer I was working on and what I was doing. I am so forgetful sometimes it is dangerous, I burn things, ad its getting worse, then I have moments where I'm okay. Prednisone helps. In my case, I was told my brain damage, which still seems to be occurring had to do with my thyroid and endocrine problems and that it would probably be permanent. I thinkthat from pred and my already low cortisol, I am sort of low on pred normally. Even taking a small dose of pred helps me alot, in terms of energy and thinking. I lose some of my pot belly on it too.
So I think sometimes we also can become sort of naturally low on pred from being on it so much, I don't bounce back anymore ad get to where I cant stay awake. I saw a show on mystery diagnosis and the woman had Cushings and she had been "getting dumber" and barely gradulated college with help, and was falling asleep suddenly and her family had difficulty waking her. Finally they couldn't and they called an ambulance and she had had an addisonian crisis from cushings or something like that. I have been to the er and treatedfor addisonian crisis before.
You might try to make sure something else isn't wrong, likethyroid or endocrine, maybe make a case for some prednisone. Provigil is a non-steroid drug some docs prescribe to keep us going but it hadthe opposite effect on me and it made me incredibly tired. And its sort of like speed. So go figure.
Takecare and when you don't know what to draw, then maybe make a few lins and see what they look like? I'm sure they look great.
