You mean brain fog? That's a rather common bonus of being HIV infected. I know lots of Poz people who intermittently have the same problem with concentration and short term memory and so forth, including me. Then again, it could also just be old age.  ;)

Oh yes, that wonderful brainfog.

Hell, if I don't write things down, I can forget an hour after I have taken meds, whether I had taken them or not. Thats scary !!

I sometimes loose my thought in conversation, and go blank for a couple seconds. I am glad it doesn't happen that often.


But I still have an excellant memory. Pretty much...

I attribute it to sustiva.  I get it every so often.  OK alot.  I am on Adderall for ADHD so that helps somewhat but DAMN i forget alot more than I used to.

Maybe its the HIV prematurely aging my brain!

Oh lordy, brain fog!

Yep, I forget things, sometimes in mid-sentence. I also tend to start four or five different projects at once and then forget the ones I started first.

I have make a concentrated effort to start and finish something without starting something else, lest nothing be finished.

HIV surely plays a part, as does getting older and, at times, stress.

HUGS,

Mark
