Yes. I have to concentrate hard to do simple things correctly. During Algebra homebound class the other day I could not remember what 6•5 was. The teacher looked at me like I was nuts.

Yes! A few times I've gone to the pharmacy or a store and the clerk would ask what my phone number is and I can't remember it! It's so embarrassing and awful. I used to take pride in being a somewhat intelligent person, and now I have to pause midsentence to try to just get my thoughts out or I trail off, and it takes me forever to read something and comprehend it. As much as it's annoying to have this disease at any point, I'm glad I made it through school before it hit me because I can't imagine trying to do school work with the cognitive issues I have now.

I don't know if my brain is causing these issues or is just affected by POTS and a lack of blood flow, but it's worrisome whatever the cause. :(
