Has the "smart" area of my brain been compromised by frayed wires (aka MS) or by a 26 month "hiatus" from "professional" communication?
It has been lovingly pointed out to me that both my speech and my written word (both grammar and spelling) have declined since I "got sick".
Even Jason's Scrabble scores are getting closer to mine!
I certainly can say that I notice a difference in my speech/conversation. I pause a lot more, and I have to search for words. And if I don't pause, or search...I use the completely wrong word! For example, I have repeatedly referred to my needles as "noodles".
I can say this...I type my blogs as if I am saying them out loud. Isn't that the best way to have a conversation with you?
So as for why my communication skills have declined...I don't know. Do I care....yes. A part of me believes that NOT working...just being casual, and hanging out at home has played a role. But I have read about other people living with MS who feel that at one time, they too were succinct, clear...or crap, I can't think of the words!
Thank goodness I'm still polite and cheery...that hasn't diminished!
