I am not up to or even want to walk either but my doc tells me this will help my brain juices when I am down. Sometimes I will just get up and walk around the house or go out side and walk around but I find that my mind is always elsewhere. I have such a hard time with my memory, forgetting just about everything--I start out doing one thing and in less than 1 min i'm somewhere else in my house doing something else. It's wild. I told my doc that my mind feels like it's always churning, talking, moving rapidly. It will not be quite. Does anybody else still have this happening to them?
I do have the same memory problems. I thought it was due to my meds. I feel foggy and like you said you will start one thing and if something else catches your eye you will do that and forget about the other. Sometimes an hour or so after dinner I will forget what I ate until I really concentrate and play it out in my mind. You are not alone. I wish there was a quick fix for this and if there is please let us know. It's hard to keep up and very frustrating. Good luck and hang in there.
U too Mr. T
Oh poo...I forgot what I wanted to say!
I have a terrible memory ever since I was put on the bipolar meds. It is really bad. Sometimes I can't even remember what took place an hour ago!
I talked with my pdoc about this a few times and then I told him I was very concerned about it. He told me that it was the bipolar and that was the way our connectors are wired up in our mind. hmmph?
