I had a brain bleed over twelve years ago from a right-frontal AVM. It affects my short-term memory, so reading can be a real challenge. In the past, I could read a book, make notes about it, and then use those notes to jog my memory about the story before starting a new chapter. Nowadays, I’m finding a different issue. When I read, it feels like someone has cut a big hole all the way through the book. Picture something like this (without the batteries!):
It seems like something different than forgetting what happened… it’s like my brain can’t even process the information in the first place, unless I’m reading like middle-school aged books.
Does this happen to anyone else?
