I was diagnosed with a viral Encephalitis back in 2001, left me with a silly stutter and a few memory problems, I can recall things prior to being ill with some accuracy, but anything after??? Work and learning area is most affected. But I persevered up till four months ago, when things raised their ugly head. My stutter became so bad, I couldn't talk without 'flibberflobbing like 'bill n ben', I became confused too, and struggle to take anything in. I have been off work since, under investigation, had mri head scan this week, and waiting on a spect scan. But normally, in the past, if I brought things up in conversation with my gp or hospital doctors, it seems to me, that if they can't fix it, they ain't interested.
