Hi, @tinadish – welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. That is tough to feel that you have aged a lot from your condition.

I wanted to recommend a couple Connect groups in addition to the Brain & Nervous system one in which you posted, based on your mention of PTSD, major recovery and depressive disorder, and anxiety:

– Mental Health group https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/mental-health/

– Depression & Anxiety group https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/depression-anxiety/ (these topics were large enough that we created a group just on these two mental health topics)

If you go to the group pages here, you might scroll down through the discussions and see if there are any that might interest you for reading or posting.

Are you now taking medication for the symptoms you mentioned, like problems with balance, memory, spelling, strange body sensations?

@lisalucier I was advised by my neurologist to take an 81 mg aspirin every day, take blood pressure med., eat healthy and exercise everyday for 30 minutes. I am also going to physical therapy for left side weakness. Is this all I can do?? Doesn’t help with memory, weird body sensations or driving or for finding my words or confusion. Will this lead to demitasse? She didn’t address that. Thanks for any info.
