More Evidence for What I Know Is True

First: Fibromyal­gia and Chron­ic Fatigue Syn­drome are pret­ty much the same things. Which diag­no­sis an indi­vid­ual gets depends on the doc­tor she sees and whether she com­plains more about the pain or the fatigue. I’ve been diag­nosed with both, but con­sid­er it one DX.

I real­ly annoy the fam­i­ly at times, because if some­one tries to give me ver­bal direc­tions to a place, give me a list of things, etc. I can­not make any sense of it or retain the infor­ma­tion with­out writ­ing it down.

That was­n’t always the case. I get real­ly frus­trat­ed with myself over it.

I’m not the only per­son with this prob­lem, though.
Objec­tive Evi­dence of Cog­ni­tive Com­plaints in Chron­ic Fatigue Syndrome

Find­ings showed that indi­vid­u­als with CFS are able to process chal­leng­ing audi­to­ry infor­ma­tion as accu­rate­ly as Con­trols but uti­lize more exten­sive regions of the net­work asso­ci­at­ed with the ver­bal WM sys­tem. Indi­vid­u­als with CFS appear to have to exert greater effort to process audi­to­ry infor­ma­tion as effec­tive­ly as demo­graph­i­cal­ly sim­i­lar healthy adults

It’s still frus­trat­ing, but at least I know it’s a symp­tom of the dis­ease rather than me get­ting dumb­er as I age.
