    Forgetfulness!

    Just wondering if anyone else does this ...........

    Sometimes I open and read a thread here and think, " this is interesting" and decide to respond to the postings. Then I see that I had already posted to the same thread before! I did not even remember reading the thread before! Oh man! This getting old stuff is getting OLD!

    I can top that! I re-read a post and think of what I would to respond to it. Then in scrolling down realize that I've already posted exactly what I was thinking of posting. So, yeah, I agree about the getting old part. gheesh

    Been there, done that. They say getting old isn't for sissies, and I'm beginning to believe that.

    I want to reply to many, but if there are lots of postings, by the time I get to the bottom I have already forgotten what I was going to say. Getting old and forgetful, sure makes holding a grudge much harder. I guess that may be a good thing.

    HAHA!! I can agree.. I was talking with my cousin and she reminded me of all the quilts we did together (hand sewing) that I had totally forgotten about.. Yo Yo's, wedding ring, and a host of others we chatted about . I guess the ol harddrive is in need of a cleaning out and re-booting !LOL

    Hi ladies,

    Check in with your family doctor. Getting forgetful is not always linked to aging.

    2.5 years ago I went to my doctor in tears. I was forgetting entire conversations, doing add things like turning off the stove while cooking and more.

    And I was only 43!

    I watched my mother's best friend succumb to Alzheimer's and was very afraid.

    My doctor assured me that those who feel something is wrong are not the ones he worried about, it was the ones whose families were bring up concerns, while the patient was in denial.

    After a bunch of blood work it turned out my b12 was really low and that was causing the memory loss and odd behaviour. Further investigation linked it to my chronic IBS. I went gluten free and take b12 daily and am back to normal.

    Very good advice, even if we are old, it could be something else/

    In Jan '08 I was in a car accident and suffered a TBI, we just call it 'hit in the head.'
    Sometimes I have trouble with my short term memory, but it's not so bad, I'll forever be able to say "I was hit in the head" (rather than saying it's due to me being old!)
    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean????

    Me neither.

    This sounds like a great excuse. My husband had a stroke about 10 yrs. ago and then open heart surgery. Now every time he needs and excuse for something he says "You know I've been sick" with this little boy grin on his face.
    When a dying man asked his pastor "How long does it take to die?" his pastor's heartfelt reply was "A lifetime." Live life to the fullest, but stop now and then to enjoy the sunset.
