for me, my memory is defo effected - but the thing i notice more acutely is that i am much slower to learn new skills - esp those requiring flexibility in thinking - eg new people management skills.
I think I've mentioned it before - but
Buhner suggests herbs that contain Nerve Growth Factors to help restore pre-Lyme cognitive function and memory.
the main/best one I remember is Lions Mane Mushroom - I plan to use this once I feel I am mostly done with the infections.
it doesn't seem to have any downsides other than it is quite an expensive herb. but the cost can be mitigated if made into tinctures. As the tincture dosage is much lower.
any form of stress makes learning or recall much harder for everyone - so amplifies the effect in Lyme patients. so perhaps stress management steps like meditation or yoga could help lower general stress and thereby improve memory/learning ( plenty of studies show it works for school and college kids )
our brains - even if not in ideal shape are still plastic in their ability to learn new things - sometimes to an amazing degree. people have lost 1/3 of their brain tissue in combat and learned to talk and walk and even entertain rooms of people with their stories by using completely different parts of the brain. it takes time and effort - but a great deal is possible.
hang in there.
