Hello Xdarata, and welcome to HW.
This disease is very frightening, but from what you wrote, you haven't been dx w/ Alzheimer's. Is that right?
I think most of us forget things on a very regular basis. It can be due to stress or such. It happens the older we get, too.
I have what is lovingly called, 'Fibro Fog'. There are times I can't remember how to add a group of numbers or how to spell a simple word I know, etc. I was a teacher for many yrs., so you can imagine how unnerving that was in a classroom.
If you have concerns about your memory, I would suggest you discuss this w/ your dr. S/he may send you to a neurologist or such to have testing done.
My DM had the testing done yrs ago. She did have this DD. At this point in time, I do not.
Your dr may be able to give you some peace of mind. Pls let us know how you're doing?
God bless. Alice.
