Faraday & Illness

Today I tweeted:

I remember how horrifying it was to turn around and suddenly not remember things that were basic and intrinsic to me.

Like trying to walk on a leg that suddenly wasn’t there.

It wasn’t “oh, where did I put my car keys” it was “what are the letters in the alphabet?” “How do I type again?”

And what cartoon Faraday says about not being only to hold the whole in his head but only things in parts, that’s exactly what it’s still like.
