    I just want to thank you up front becasue after I read your responce the chance of me remembering anything will be hard!

    I am really struggling with recall of names, objects or anything. It's like its not there. It has become difficult at work. Embarrassing to say the least. I feel like I have dementia. This has gotten worse with the B12 protocol.

    Any thoughts or suggestions....

    My suggestion: get tested for viral and bacterial infections. Any methylation protocol is at best a band-aid. If I am not mistaken, you are also taking a bunch of potassium. Do you have regular blood tests to make sure you are not over doing it? Same advice goes for DHEA, which you are taking a ton of.

    Ohhh Nano... band-aids are for stopping the bleeding AND hiding Staph infections! I think I might try to find the balance with the potassium.

    I have been tested (overly tested) the only thing I have had was CPN and candida. I take Doxy twice a day.

    Two things that do help my mind clarity are Lovenox and Diflucan. I have not noticed if it helps memory recall.

    I think that my memory and brain function in general is worse when my sleep has been worse, but if I can somehow manage a nap, that sometimes helps.

    Hi Place,

    So what exactly are you currently taking? I need to know that before I can even begin to take a shot at the answer.

    I have the same problem so I am waiting to hear other suggestions. I work so hard, I am an occupational therapist at a school for children with developmental delays. I am exhuasted and brain dead by the time I get home and then starts my second job (mom and wife)! I read and read and research new things for work. If I don't write them all down "poof" there gone.

    You could try a mild nootropic like CDP-choline or Brahmi.

    I got really sick on Friday night and not for good reasons. I think I was fighting something all week (nano, how did you know!!!) and then battled with it all weekend. I think that added to my moron like mind. So it is better but not as good when I am on lovenox and or diflucan. So I know I can get to that state. I think I will look at the methylation cycle chart to see what I am missing and add that to 1 million pills I am already taking =(

    Cat- I know how hard you work, I worked with ots and pts when I taught. I had to quit teaching because I could not sustain the energy. Life did get better energy wise after I quit but not everyone has that choice. Hopefully your school district keeps your caseload below 50.

    can look into racetams eg piracetam and aniracetam. I used them a few years ago and they helped clear the fog. I think i stopped using them as there was a problem with the supplier. WOuld like to use them again, i preferred aniracetam, for some reason piracetam made me sleepy during the day.

    cheers!!!

    PS pregnenolone can also be helpful.

    Hi, place.

    Low acetylcholine might be another possibility. It is very important for memory. Supplementation of choline and acetylcarnitine might help, but check with your doc first.

    Best regards,

    Howdy All,

    Memory has been better this week but not great. I think this very important to solve as many people struggle with this. Or at least get a list of possible contenders to solve the problem.

    Silicon- Your pict/avatar make me smile everytime I look at it. My sleep was very poor last week and sleep really does make or break it.

    Adreno (yummy, I love studies, thank you!), Heap and Rich- thank you very much for the suggestions. I am going to trial them one at a time for two week each. Hopefully I will get lucky on the first trial! A girl can dream....
