All of my life I have been able to gain employment and keep employment. Then diagnosed in 2012 and I’m living in a smog now. I am finally able to recognize it. I’m not the superwomen I use to be. I cannot interview for positions for which I am qualified for. So now what? if I apply for something I am less qualified for, it will only bring my self esteem lower than it’s ever been. After so many interviews I have had, how do I feed my family now? Is there any medication I can take to enhance my cognitive difficulties? I’m bored with being home. When I was at the top of my game I was known as a powerhouse and brilliant. My colleagues use to look up to me, now I am nothing but a whiney always complaining marshmallow. All I can say is that living in this fog is no fun at all. I know all the answers and I prepare myself prior to interviews and then I get on the phone and bungle it every time. What is wrong with me?
