Everything I do now is hard as I think I am doing it wrong. This is the case most of the time when I am at work. I am painfully slow at doing things as I am worried that I will make a mistake. Some times I do. My memory doesn’t help as from one day to the next I can’t remember what I do. I know I should do all the things that I am told, make notes to remind me. It just seems so unusual to do this all the time. The other day I was asked why I had done a particular thing. I just couldn’t remember and it was so frustrating. I have great people that I work with and it turned out that I hadn’t done anything wrong. I know that people are checking up on me all the time and this makes it hard. I guess it is just another thing that I have to get used to I suppose. I know it is not bad to make a few mistakes, everyone makes mistakes. I guess I am just being overcritical of myself. I just want to go back to the person that I used to be 18 months ago but it is just impossible. I don’t remember if I always made mistakes at work but at least no one was checking up on me all the time.

I have a brain injury, a hypoxic one. It has been life changing to me and I don't seem to want to stop talking about it. I think people are getting bored of me so a blog will hopefully help. Oh yeah, it has caused me to have mental health problems too...great. View all posts by A Recovering Brain
