Hi everyone I am 24 years old, since I enetered first grade till about high school, I was always in the first place of my class. I did that in three different school in the country. Just before high school, I started to get bullied every single day for more than two years, I became very anxious, very worried, one day at the summer in high school, I started to forget where I put my things, what I memorized, my brain is clouded, no energy, no confidence. When reading the cognition thread here, I suffer the same as you guys here and I actually felt happier that I was suffering from something and not lazy or irresponsible student as my professors claimed. This issues makes me suffer so much, also speech issues etc, but I do not have any monents such I cannot calculate basic numbers or remember a few words, but now complicated mathematics at high school or uni or even before high school is beyond my ability. I remember I dedicated 1 month to study little material for macroeconomics, I really slept at my book for the whole month, and when I entered the exam I barely could remember few things, and the rest is gone. Somehow, I managed to learn English, starting from scratch 4 years ago, and I am now very fluent to the point I have reanslated 4 books to my native language. I think there is still some linguistic ability not affected, I say some because I also stutter, and cannot see really what I am saying next. I am not sure is it I havev CFS/ME or becsuae of my anxiety? But thank you very much for conforming I am not stupid, or lazy, I am just sick.
