My mom, dad, sisters, husband and my friends say that they have conversations with me about things and that I don't remember them at all. My mom says she will tell me about something going on in the family or something and that a few days later I will be mad at her for not telling me. She insists she told me and I am just as adamant that she did not. My husband says I do things and I don't remember doing them. In the last two days, I've recieved packages that I don't remember ordering. The first one, I blamed on hubby's ex, that she was trying to get back at us for her own stupid reasons. But today, I got another package. In it was a CD that I've wanted for awhile but never bought. I do not remember ordering this. I really don't. And it's starting to scare me. What is wrong with me? Can anyone relate to this? Is this part of the bipolar disorder or is it just me? And if it is the bipolarism, is it going to get worse?

Thanks Cliff-
I'm glad I'm not the only one. Makes me feel like I'm not going totally out of my mind.

i, too have memory problems.  as a matter of fact i was going to have my neurologist test me for dementia because the memory lapses were so bad.  then, a cosmic synchronization! scool    there was a thread on this forum discussing memory loss and bp.  at first i thought it might be the lithium (900 mg/day) but other people posting indicated that it ocured with other meds.  so i can only assume that it a by-product of the illness.  i forgot to ask my pdoc about it.  if one of us remembers, please remember to post his/her responce.

Hi Chelle, and all,

I too have memory loss, mostly short term. I attribute some of it to klonipin, a medication I am on. I have done some research and found out that it causes this to happen. I would look first at the meds, but it could also be something connected to bipolar. There is such a thing called (brain fog). People with autoimmine diesease or chronic ilness and pain seem to have it. Or at least that is what I have come to find out having several autoimmune diseases and communicating online with others that have it.
Mine is really bad right now. I forget what I am doing, what I am looking for, ect. I really need to carry a notebook with me to write everything down. With the illnesses I have and the meds I am, I don't know which is causing what. Sometimes, esp after resting, my memory is much better.

I will post linie to some info to "brain fog"

Thanks for bringing this up. i can really relate.

Be well,

Judy
