Before multiple sclerosis (MS), I was pretty proud of my memory. For the most part, I still am, but like many others with this disease, I now have trouble recalling information. For me, it’s one of the most irritating, (sometimes even infuriating), cognitive issues associated with MS.
I have always had a very visual memory. That’s not unusual, as many people seem to more easily remember things they’ve seen rather than heard, for example. I don’t have anything close to a photographic memory (if that truly exists), just an efficient way to store and recall information.
