I've seen a psychiatry before to work on anxiety and depression. After my surgery last year November 2017, my memory and language got worst. My filipino language got affected too. I'm really bad with names. A lot of student in Childcare campus greets me and I can only say hello cause I forgot their names. Forgettin guy's name even though I see them every month or family friend is worst. Neurologist told me to see Neuropsychologist.
