@colleenyoung, I posed my original question in the Blood Disorder and ICU Groups but didn't receive any responses so, since it's contributed to my chronic pain, I posted it in the Chronic pain group. As for long-term issues, I initially couldn't read & comprehend and I wasn't able to type. Prior to DIC, I was an avid reader and typed 120 words per minute. I started out reading short magazine stories, went up to children's books & eventually to the books I normally read. To this day though, I often can't recall the story line and have to re-read a few chapters before resuming to read. I was a paralegal/legal assistant so these symptoms, along with being deaf in my left ear, we're distressing. Over the years since 2007, my symptoms have worsened. For example, I often stutter (I was formerly a public speaker) ; I have more & more frequently episodes of what looks like seizures that turn my legs to jelly & now my whole body jerks uncontrollably and I frequently fall resulting in injuries; I used to be witty but now I often can't think quickly enough to respond; I have severe anxiety and depression and can't deal with it properly. If not for faith in God, I would not continue to exist. As it is, I don't live life, I exist in my recliner, smoke cigarettes & watch TV. I have other long term symptoms like passing out, zoning out, irritability, etc.
