I feel your pain. I have all the twitiching and the memory *stuff. Is it reversable... I can't remeber what my doc told me. lol jk. I too enjoy the pleasure of telling the same story over and over AND OVER again to the same people, and NEVER knowing that I said it already! My significant other handles it very well. He sits there and he smiles and I swear it's like he is totally interested in what I have to say... Then he breaks the news, I already told him... I am in shock! I swear he reacted better the second time, even though I have ZERO memory of the first time. Then he tells me this is the third or 4th time I have said the same story... My mother and siblings (outside the home) aren't so kind. They think I am patronizing them. An innocent question or statment can come across badly when repeatedly stated..
Rhonda- YOU have described MY life perfectly as it has been since March or so. I went and saw my neuro- she confirmed it, and I was started on Aricept. If it works are not, it is really hard to say. I think it does, but then can I trust my memory to say that? I dunno.
Without a fresh MRI in hand, my neuro speculated that I am having some brain atrophy caused by the MS lesions. uhm, I try not to think about that... Let me know what your neuro has to say! I like to hear what is being done or said for others!
Good Luck to You,
