On Thursday I have neuropsych testing for my memory loss. I'm pretty nervous about the whole thing, not necessarily the testing but what it might find. I will find out those results on December 9th when I see the neurologist again. If they are inconclusive, then we'll see about doing an MRI.
I'm told this testing is frustrating for those being tested because when they find a weakness they nab at it until they really understand the full extent of the disability, which means really zeroing in on that weakness. 3 hours of that.
It's coming up on a year since I started trying to get in to see a neurologist (in December). I think COVID helped with that. I'm glad that it's finally happening, but I'm nervous.
My mom says I've done this testing before, once when I was 6 and once when I was 17. I don't remember it. Another one of those moments where it was significant enough to where I should remember it, but I don't. It's terribly frustrating. She said the results back then showed I had short-term memory loss. When I asked her if it was even worth doing again if I've done it before she said yes, that my memory has gotten a lot worse since then. Well look at that folks I'm a real-life Dory
