Relearning a programming language can be a real hell. It's like trying to ride a car, but you don't know where the key has to be put in.
Even simple problems that you could then program almost with your hands on your back, become a real struggle.
It is not that you have lost your marbles. This is hellish situation that everyone has to overcome when relearning a programming language.
You can even overkook when someone says, 'oh but that is simple'. Don't kill him at first sight, but the next time you see him you can tackle the problem.
