I've been doing the TV and movie thing for years now. My DH says the same things Donna but I think he finally realizes I don't remember watching things. It's the same way with places we have been on vacations, he will say remember when we were at so and so and I don't have a clue what he is talking about and this was way before fibro. My youngest son says he went to Niagra Falls with us one year and I have no memory of him ever going to Niagra Falls with us. I remember taking the boys many places but not Niagra Falls. I think they tell me this stuff to try and drive me crazier.
I don't fall asleep while watching TV. It has to be a very good show or movie to stick with me. I have my favorite movies that I have watched several times and I remember them quite well.
The scary thing is when one of my sons will ask me about something in their childhood and I can't remember it. Yet, I remember things when I was three and four years old like it was yesterday.
I know that xanax can cause memory loss but I would have no quality of life without it.
luv and hugs
