I am scatter brained. I don't think it is my MS. Talked to my doctor about this. She said it is my brain's way of coping with things, Your brain can only hold so much. You need to slow down is what she told me. She also told me it is my body's way of coping with things I can not control. I told her I can't slow down it is my way of coping with my MS and anything else that is going on. My body will tell me when it is time to slow down. Prayers for your family, Stay strong.
