They say that the most dangerous kind of ignorance is not knowing what you don’t know. It took me a long time to realize I had statin-related cognitive impairment because I had no idea what it was.
A few years ago, I found myself slowly sinking into a sea of troubles. My work productivity gradually slumped, I had trouble remembering names and appointments, and I started having more trouble designing technical solutions for my clients. I had less energy for my family, and I felt grumpy and depressed about it.
