Firsthand experiences XVI: ‘My memory had dropped profoundly… my speech was slurred’

A user wrote on a Reddit hair loss forum: “A month after I started noticing that my brain functionality had dropped, words were missing or incomplete and my memory had dropped profoundly. I couldn’t recall what I had for lunch an hour after eating. I was stumbling over words, my speech was slurred. I was experiencing depression and anxiety that seemingly came out of nowhere.”
