This is likely because damage to myelin around signalling cells in the nervous system slows down messages. This in turn results in difficulty processing sentences, or even road signs or verbal instructions. If you are also experiencing attention and concentration problems then you might be easily distracted by your surroundings.

It can be very frustrating for you and can also be misinterpreted by others in a conversation as inattention or even rudeness. So it can be a good idea to cut yourself some slack and explain to people that you just need a little longer to process information, just as you might need a little longer to cross the road.


There are strategies that you can adopt to help.
