Cognitive impairment

Mariam786 Community member Posts: 1 Listener
Just looking for advice really. I am doing a PhD and I am in my final year. I suffered a stroke in December and it has really affected me physically and mentally. I have short term memory issues along with confusion, anxiety and just unable to communicate properly. I use my phone to make notes of conversations as I am very forgetful post stroke and find it really difficult to answer questions. I have pain in both my arms and I am unable to do tasks for longer than five minutes. Based on these symptoms what sort of support could I possibly apply for does anyone know please? If I didn't have the stroke, I was planning to get a job in the summer as that's when I would have completed my studies. I need the income, does anyone have any advice please? Thank you
