My hypoxia injured the right side of my brain more. so it makes sense that my attention & problem solving ability should be effected. I figured out (problem solved), how to improve my problem solving ability. I just take longer figuring out how to come up wt solutions, and can do it a a a lot better now. I even figured out ways to improve my memory, by associating what I have to remember wt something familiar. The thing about attention is, good attention ability, requires speed, and you can't spend time, figuring out how you missed something. Whenever I'm wt my brother and he's driving, he always mentions when he sees a hawk. The thing is I don't even usually see it, even when he says, 'over to the right by the trees.' I always had poor eyesight, even before my injury, so that doesn't help much, but I know the injury isn't helping the situation. A girl I dated before my injury, told me after it, how I had once just missed a stop sign. So this problem isn't exactly new, but now it's is leagues worse. Does anyone, have any ideas, on improving attentional ability?
