Now waiting for appointment to come through for follow up things seem to be getting worse now I have slower speed of thought,problems concentrating,emotional, slight confusion disorientated,lack of interest and finding the right words. spoken to my GP and he said wait for appointment to come through. Looked at the medication i am on nothing strong enough for me to go loopy looking to find out if anyone else out there has been through similar or someone they know
