boy do I know this....I used to be able to work/think on several different projects/ideas at the same time and carry on conversations - kind of like having 10+ IM windows open on the computer and keeping up with every one of them.
Now - I do good to keep 2 going. Somedays, not even 1.
I can't remember dates, times, appt., I can't do math in my head anymore (my 9 year old does math in her head better than I). I have to write EVERYTHING down which just creates stress for me because I'm always having to say 'wait a minute - let me look that up'.
But hey...who cares? I'm not suicidal anymore...and I occassionally even smile. But it's still aggravating and stress producing.
