so I've tried oral steroids for months and had some gain in speech comprehension. maybe the dose was too high I was on 60mg for a while and went up to 100mg for a few days with decadron.
but I still have problems hearing vowels or completely space out and can't pay attention to sentences sometimes. I'm worried my brain was damaged by the antibiotics and I won't be able to do high level coding or math anymore.
I kind of think the treatment was worth it at this point and I took insulin injections since I think I may already be diabetic and am on metformin for high ha1c
