I can sympathize with you. The fogginess worries me too. It causes me great stress at work. My supervisor no longer comes to me for things because I usually don't have the right answer or I don't have one at all. I'm beginning to worry about losing my job. Why would they keep me if I am of no use to them? I'm considering a career change, something better suited for me.
The driving can be tough, too. I don't do alot of freeway driving because it seems overwhelming or something. I don't have the ability to think and act quickly in pressure situations. I almost got hit by a car going about 100 mph because of how slowly my brain seems to work. I'm going on meds asap. I'm so tired of this crap. I want a chance at life too. I flirted with suicide, the only thing that has kept me here is God. Pleeeease get help for yourself and your child. At his age, meds will prevent alot of missed oppor
tunities like we've had. Hang in there :)
