New to Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

I have Mild Cognitive Impairment from a Stroke in 2001! I am 58 years young and am very worried about my future, regardless of how and what the information documents reflect, for a person in my age bracket! I would hope, that relearning my skills and engaging in many different projects, classes, Volunteer Work, online Brain Games, etcetera, will help! However, no-one can predict the future, so I am staying busy and doing my part to stave off Dementia later in life!

You are a strong woman. Thank you for sharing your positive attitude about your diagnosis.

I also have MCI (mild cognitive impairment). After testing my neurologist assured me that I do not have Alzheimer’s. Yet?
I was prescribed Clonazapam for a head tremor. I became dependent on this pharmaceutical..I did not know that it affects memory and mood!
I am now tapering off of Clon with the help of Escitalopram.
I am looking forward to meeting a (referral) psychiatrist who will counsel and manage the decrease in medication. 🙏 please
