I have felt so alone the past 6 years kind of like an outsider looking in until I found this site. I too get bad head aches, actually migraines. But I am most frustrated by my inability to recall words sometimes when speaking. Often I really have to concentrate on what word I want to say next. And my memory is nonexistent when it comes to retaining subject matter. I can read something and not be able to tell you much about it a few hours later. This of course is worse with fatigue. Hard to imagine I am a licensed and credentialed professional with 3 degrees who now only works 12 hours a week and that is my limit. I used to be an avid reader, not any more. For someone where thinking and education was primary, this has made me feel less then.
