Default Onset of Symptoms

Hi I hope someone can help?
I was confirmed at 27 being positive and up until now, 47, have lived a healthy life plus worked full time since 16. I am however realising that my mentality ability is slowly getting worse. Can't concentrate/focus plus memory is bad too. Best way I can explain is that I feel like I have treacle brain ! Have no get up and go - prefer to stop rather than socialise. I have lost two office based jobs recently due to the mistakes was making. As I have no problems with my mobility would I quality for any kind of benefits ? And if so which? So confusing looking at everything on line. My partner works full time so again not sure if this effects anything. Thanks in advance for any advice. Xx
