Putting cognitive function in perspective.
I think I can summarize my own experiences roughly like this:
• Cognitive dysfunction during chronic fatigue – 100%
over a 2 year period
• Cognitive dysfunction during hypoglycemia - under 10% over a 2 year period
• Cognitive dysfunction during myasthenic muscle weakness – under 5% over the last 4 year period
Am grateful for all the interesting comments including those coming from a medication perspective as well.

Thank you for sharing this – it is also very inspiring for people to read this who want to let go and move forwards – there´s already more than enough to be getting along with when you first have a disease.

I had to allow my gut to take over when the brain no longer knew what the heck to do with a horse that was starting to slide down a steep muddy embankment. It´s the first time I´ve ridden a horse and also the first time I´ve ever had to put my trust
in an animal.
I had to stop riding earlier than the rest of the group but I now have a little dream that for one single day......
I´ll find a wide open space somewhere in America and then just....ride like the wind
