After skimming a few topics & their replies, am I correct in assuming others w/ epilepsy suffer from short or long-term memory loss?
Please forgive me if this is a question that's been asked repeatedly or is deemed 'stupid' =P I have never talked to anyone that has had epilepsy before, & only found this community this evening =)
I think it goes w/out saying that I ask this question because I suffer from this. I know my memory wasn't always this bad...but it has clearly gotten worse over the past several years. Long-term memories, I need more reminders about an event or conversation; short-term, same thing...if I remember @ all. I'll forget what I'm talking about while I'm doing the talking...altho 1 doctor deemed this as disassociative seizures, when I had previously placed it as a lack of interest (i.e. work conversation, hah).
**Edit - Answered my own question after peeking around a bit more. I suppose there is some reassurance in knowing what my once infallible memory is being marred by...
