I am not a psychiatrist, psychologist, or therapist. I am a woman who is getting closer to her next birthday who has never been to college. All I have to give is my experience – that’s it. Experience = opinion = my opinion. With that said, I want to dissect the topic of our aging memory. For me, my entire life has been a series of “I can’t remember.” Simply because I have the worst, most awful, memory of anyone I know. It’s got to be an ADD thing – hard for me to stay focused for any length of time. As a side note here, yesterday I spent the ENTIRE day writing an article. It probably would’ve taken anyone else two hours to write what took me from 9am to 5pm to write. All the distractions and lack of focus… My husband had to re-direct me a few times. No really, all true. I can’t believe I actually earned my HS diploma, seriously. If I get dementia I am royally %$#@&* because my short-term memory will be shot and my long-term memory is already close to non-existent. I am truly feeling sorry for my children. I have to remember to be especially nice to them… they will be choosing my nursing home… (that’s if I can remember) Focus, I need to focus.
