  1. I have had all those tests several times, been in or am in several studies, still ongoing studies and being put into studies regularly over the past 6 years. I am under the care of 3 Doctors, the one I go see, we arrive at 9 AM and leave around 5:3PM. I have lost my short term Memory totally. I meet People who know me, but I have no clue who they are. I try to tell some one where something is, and it always a 20 minute description with never mentioning the place. And I am all of 58 years old.
