Brain injury and Cognitive testing
About 2 years ago I was diagnosed with Clippers, an autoimmune disease that leaves large inflammatory patches on the brain. With extensive inpatient and outpatient rehab (and on-going medications), I have been able to get back to doing most things for myself. I have noticed, though, that my ability to sew and quilt has been seriously affected. Not to brag, but I was a very good contemporary art quilter. But now there seems to be a block or wall between me and quilting. I have all these great ideas, but when I go to my studio, I just stand there. Nothing makes sense. I describe it as though I “can’t put 2 and 2 together.” My neurologist suggested cognitive testing to, maybe, pinpoint the problem. Has anyone experienced a similar type of blockage? What have you been able to do for it? And, what’s involved with cognitive testing? Sure need some answers!
