3 months ago I almost died from autoimmune encephalitis. They caught it pretty late because I was not being treated at a institution fully equipped to recognize and treat it. I only got treatment because I got transferred to Mayo clinic. They did neuropsychological testing on me last week and told me that I incurred some permanent damage from the whole debacle. They told me that my verbal intelligence is mostly intact, but I suffered huge hits processing speed, spatial cognition, and episodic memory. Going back to work is pretty much out of the question as I was working toward a graduate degree in physics and was employed by the University. I can hardly look at some of the coursework I was doing only weeks before the onset. Just wanted some insight on what you guys think I should do /advice.
