I hear you - I fear the years of medications have lowered my IQ by about 50 points. :(
Oh, how I hear you, PB. I have worried about this in the past and I worry about it now, too. I am grateful I only have one scheduled shift a week because it's all I can handle.
I definitely notice the difference. The Dr. had hoped after getting the doses down to reasonable amounts and the number of meds down to 2 that I would see some recovery of lost cognitive functioning.I think I have recovered some. But the holes in my cognition - reaching for words/names that don't seem to exist - well I think that might be permanent.It has made me fearful to return to school as a student or as an instructor.
