Loosing my memory?  Nope, not me.  I remember last year like it was only yesterday.   :)

   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.

   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.

I have been more forgetful than ever. It seems to be building up more and more since I started building my house. I don't think anything is wrong internally I just believe its because I have more going on in my life than ever and I always was forgetful. That's what I'm hoping.
I make a lot of lists.
Sometimes I loose these lists but it helps just making them.
Right now I have no idea where my main set of truck keys are.
Lucky I did know where my second set was.

Doesn't "loosing" my memory mean it's rattling around in there, and "losing" my memory means it's gone? ;D ;D

I found my truck keys by the wood stove.
I have no Idea why I put them there.
I lost my jacket.
I guess you just can't have everything at once.

Were your keys in your jacket before you took them out? Check the stove. :D

I have certain places for certain things. I got sick of looking for things that if I put them there I would see them easily. ::)  I can put something down in plain sight and look for it for 15 minutes.
