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
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.
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....
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??
