Lately I have been having severe issues with my memory. I can have an entire conversation with someone and completely forget what I said the next day. I totally goofed today, when I went out to work with my cell phone. I had turned it off last night during my son's band concert, then I never turned it back on. Meanwhile my wife is at home with a sick child, flipping out because I am not answering text messages or calls. I just can not remember things well and it is starting to really interfere with my daily life. I am on 150 mg Lamictal, and I wonder if that is affecting me?? Anyone with similar experiences?

I had been looking after my Dad who has alzheimers up untill about three weeks ago. Then I was always helping him find things b/c of his disease. Now, alone (except for my two dogs), I am a basketcase. I cannot remember where I put things, have lost three pair of sunglasses in two weeks, left my wallet in public washroom, some angel found it and gave it to store manager, who gave it back. It had $500.00 cash in it, can you believe it, nothing touched. Then as I got out of car to go check on our old farmhouse, I dropped it (wallet) on the road and never noticed. There was a note on my windshield when I got back. A lady was driving by and saw it lying in the road. Then, one day I went to Walmart and as I was walking through the parking lot, I left a trail of four twenties, as I went. One lady followed me picking them up as she went and caught up with me in the store. I thanked her 100 times.It is not a med issue in my case, I don't believe. I think it is a result of long term stress, and current stress, unbelievable. I feel like my hard drive (in my head) crashed b/c too much bad stuff was going on, all at once, and is still going on. Wednesday, I swerved to avoid an oncoming logging truck on a back road as snow was just beginning to fall, but ice was underneath. I had to wait in an oncoming blizzard, to get towed out, for an hour. The ditch was about eight feet down. Me and my big loving dog sideways in car, cellphone went dead. Now I'm relying on the tow truck guy figuring out where I am, afraid the instructions weren't clear.

Well the tow happened, and just as a sigh of relief escaped my lips, the most horrific, unbelievable screeching noise starts behind my head. Something seriously wrong with car. Got home, made appt. with mechanic, for next day, couldn't get car to move. It started ok, just wouldn't move. Gave up. Called tow truck guy, he hauled car to garage. Got a call yesterday, the rear end dropped out of the car. So here I sit. I have no idea why I even started out that day, to Farmhouse. It was bad judgement, or lack of regard, whatever, with an oncoming blizzard in a twelve year old car, don't take the car out much less to backroads where logging trucks are flying by at 60 mph.

Hi Tyno,

What a terrible string of bad luck. I'm glad there are good people following you around, though. I'm terribly sorry about your car, though. That's horrible.

I have memory issues for sure. I get all kinds of spacey. Some times are better than others. When I get stressed out, I start forgetting everything.
