My brain doesn't work properly and I know that so have developed some strategies, but not enough I think. The thing I find hardest is dealing with information , either misreading words or not following what has been said. Customer service ( not how I would describe it!) on the phone is a nightmare. Yesterday I had to phone and ask for a service engineer which just about managed, then a car insurance company- nightmare! My neighbour damaged my car two weeks ago and I am trying to get it repaired through his insurance. They are utterly incompetent. My long suffering husband checked the latest letter from them to see if I had misread it but I hadn't. I was so mentally exhausted by then that I fell asleep. Am going to try and put down the facts so can make a complaint if I need to but my head swirls round and round trying to make sense of it all. It is not until you experience memory and cognitive problems for yourself that you realise how mentally and physically exhausting it is.
