my brain

The second thing worrisome item I’ve noticed lately - my brain. 

I am so scattered (and yes, you wise guys, that is MORE so than usual) in my thinking and memory retention. Specifically, short term memory is the pits.

I once asked Vince the same question 5x in one day. He patiently answered it for me, not saying anything until the third time. By then he added in the “you’ve already asked me this question” line. And I still asked two more times before even I realized that I might be asking it again.

It’s just so incredibly, bloody frustrating. I’m worried that I’m missing things because I’m not remembering, and worried that the missing things are important.

I’m not so uptight about it on a personal level, but at work, that’s another story. Does it mean that I can’t do my job anymore? Short of recording every thought or meeting, I’m at a loss for what to do.

  1. I don’t know if I’d be too worried about it. I know some women whose short-term memory is almost as bad as in an hr later they can’t remember what they were talking about.

  2. It’s called old age, and we’re all having the same problem baby.
    I blame it on Luke. Ever since I was pregnant with him, memory sucks…short term and long term. He’s almost 6 now, and I’ve just finally come to accept it as an inevitable part of growing older.
    There is a calendar on the frig, there is one at work, there is a list in almost every room and purse and bag I own, and I’ve actually had to start writing phone numbers down.
    I don’t know if the chemo etc has had an effect, but I’m putting it down to getting older and more tired and just plainly not being able to do the things I used to.
    That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
