hi, im a 21 year old male with a nerological spinal condition called transverse myelitis . and last febuary my nana passed away and had dementia, although i didnt notice it at the time , towards the end of her life and when she died i began to get the same symptoms i struggled everyday, but getting my mum to ask questions would help reassure that i didnt have dementia , i went to do CBT felt that didnt work as i forgot everything i was told, then in the summer it mostly went away . untill winter again and its come back worse than ever to the point i dont know where i am in my house, who my close relatives are , and now when i get things right it feels like (a) it wasnt me (b) it was luck (c) no thought process went into doing things. my brain feels like it doesnt work at all, but also feels like it works to much, i cant do anything anymore because im awful at it and forgotten how to do the things i used to love doing ! its all i can think of! on a night i lay awake , even tho im on sleeping pills i get about 3-4 hours a night and even then it doesnt feel like im asleep. i get confused with people too and starting to struggle with words , like reading them, typing them and listening and understanding. im struggling remembering my dogs name and what my mum looks like, even writting this doesnt feel like i did it ! i just want to feel better
hope this makes sense
