Dont attribute irritating behavior to malevolence when mere stupidity will suffice as an explanation.

   Yeah we like to joke about it. In fact I often say my memory was the second thing to go and I can't remember what the first was.

    Unfortunately for those actually losing their memories it is not so funny. My BIL is at that stage and is pitiful to see. I can not even imagine what that must be like.

I got a jack handle to the head only a few months after a tire iron nearly cost me an eye.  The short term memory function suffered noticeably after.  I have a hard time sorting out recent reality from a dream.  Long term is pretty great, still remember childhood and stuff like that well.  Walk into a room with a purpose then like a switch the purpose goes blank and i just stare.  Or have a conversation with someone and an hour later its like it never happened.  Then a week later itll fade back in patchy and i struggle to piece it together like recalling an actual dream as it slips away. 

History, events and mechanical stuff has all stayed intact.  Just day to day what did i do with my phone?  Was i in the shed today?   Total blanks.

Don't think I'm losing my memory yet but when asked if I believe in the hereafter, is say sure, I'm always walking into a room and saying, "what am I here after".... :D
Old doesn't bother me, its the ugly that's a real bummer.

   That reminds me when people ask if I believe in reincarnation. I tell the "No. I used to but that was in my other life." :D

I had a TBI in 2009 took a 6 inch Red Oak limb to the top of my head from about 20 ft up . Lost a lot of short term memory . I struggled with night mares every night until the doctor put me on a Benadryl before bed has helped a lot .

The Dr has me on some meds for my MS. My PCP refers to them as stupid pills. I know what I want to say, but can't recall the word that I'm after. At least they take care of the spasms related to this. Trigeminal Neuralgia. Look it up.
