I set my timer to help me remember things. Like when I am making dinner, when I am downloading something on the computer, when I have a load of cloths in the washer (the buzzer no longer works) anything that I really need to remember. I know as soon as I walk away it will be totally gone from my foggy brain. Hugs, Denise
Gotta love the green brows. New fashion statement.
Shortly before Christmas, I was trying to remember a word while I was talking to my DH. I stood there completely blank, couldn't remember the word, then couldn't remember the point I was trying to make. I guess I had that simple look on my face. My DH said 'I don't mean this to be mean, but do you think maybe you should talk to the dr. about Alzheimer's'. He feels my memory for words, simple words, is getting worse. I continued to look at him for a couple of beats, and I said 'Don't you remember that was one of the first things on my list a few yrs ago for the dr.' He didn't remember! This should be good when we are all alone in the house. I can remember stuff from my infancy, I remember poems, conversations I had yrs ago. But I forget simple little things, words, names, ya know, stuff. There are many things in my house that have the same name - Do Hickey.
I'm making light of this, but it does bother me greatly. My DM used to do this yrs ago, get upset cause she couldn't remember the name of something. She always called her daughters by one collective name. We laughed. We don't laugh now. She was dx w/ AD. So I do worry what is in my future. I try very hard to keep alert, reading, good diet and exercising.
God bless. Alice.
