I'm so glad for you that you've gotten that done, and that you got a friendly lady as the person who did you testing.
I have the same memory problem, and yes, it does reduce my grammar and my spelling from what I think that it should be, considering my aptitude for learning languages. But take heart! You'll probably still be better at grammar and spelling than the general population. On some aptitute tests that I took in Junior High School, my grammar score was at 85 and my spelling was at 70, yet my 'reading and verbal' was about 98. But nowadays, almost all my friends ask me to proofread their resumes before they send them out. One lawyer friend that I have speaks very good English, but isn't a native speaker. He 'made my day' telling me that, to him, I'm his 'supreme authority' on English grammar! Yeah, I know. He was getting his resume proofread 'for free', but still, it 'made my day'. And you'll do the same thing, even with that memory deficiency. Grammar is much easier than algebra. I'm so glad for your progress. - jus'
