When I have my down patches I feel like something is blocking all access to my brain, including memory. It feels like a windscreen wiper has just passed accross my memory and wiped most of it away. I don't know if anyone else gets this. I have learnt that it's no good trying to work at it because my frustration only increases. I just have to sit it out, apologising to everyone for not remembering names or arrangements, until it passes. My ability to talk is also effected and half the time I say the opposite to what I mean! It's weird and usually I just shut up and tell people I'll be back again soon. Friends and family are starting to understand but everyone else has just written me off as a hopeless nutter, I think.
