Mine were due to medication. It makes everyday living skills much harder these days. How about you?

No injuries, but cognitively I feel brain dead. A bit hard for me to explain but I feel like I've been on autopilot for months now. I can barely muster the mental fortitude to mow my lawn.

medication has impaired me in the past, as has recreational drug abuse, but I've been able to recover from that with time

I am permanently altered by trauma since childhood, I have DID and PTSD. There is some amount of recovery possible, I have reprocessed many of my bad experiences, but the dissociation never really stops happening, I just learn how to cope with it better. My personalities will always be disordered.

Yup unfortunately. It started 3 years ago where I noticed my memory started getting even worse and my ability to articulate my thoughts verbally took a nose dive and now I sound like an idiot most of the time trying to collect my thoughts

I have a fair bit of brain fog. My decision making does not to make sense whatsoever. Also I have a hard time concentrating on things in general.

Mild acquired brain injury because my bio father tried strangling me a few times when I was little. Also, from domestic violence relationship where I was slammed into walls, and a car accident where someone drove fast into my stationary vehicle (pre airbag model).

People say that they think I'm really smart, but I'm a bit slow at processing new information when studying, sometimes.

Yes, my brain was so messed up by the time I was 18, I couldn't retain information, so college was not doable. Autism, lack of self care, poor diet, medications are to blame I think.

Mine is from my worst ctb attempt. I swallowed everything in my medicine cabinet and was out for several days in the ICU. They did 2 EEG's on me because they were concerned about my brain, and I definitely see changes in my thinking, cognitive abilities, and just forgetfulness and stuff ever since then...Too bad I didn't just succeed....

Yep for three decades now, I've had to survive by using my physical strength in manual labor jobs. Now my body's wearing out.

i used to be passionate about studying and learning but slowly as the depression and CPTSD crept up my academic performance declined. i stopped caring about anything. what’s the point of memorizing things when i want to be dead and none of it will even matter??
