I don't know whether I'm paranoid or it is happening for real .

I took a break from work after we had our first child and barely did anything apart from taking care of my LO,cooking,laundry and cleaning. 2 years later I find myself finding it difficult to recollect names, my netbanking passwords, and some really crucial information which otherwise I would recollected even if you'd ask me when I'm asleep. Now I want to get back into corporate life and lack the confidence because I feel I am no longer the same smart individual I used to be. I am so scared !!!

You sound rather human to me tongue

As we age, our memory isn't as sharp as it used to be.

I had similar concerns a while back and asked my GP doc about em while getting a physical. I told him about the time I couldn't for the life of me remember my street number.. I was sitting in my darn living room and knew the name of the street but not the house number... I also mentioned I knew I could look on my drivers license and see the number...

He said the fact that I knew I could look up the number was a very good sign... The then ask me if I had ever been away from home and didn't remember how to get home..... That would be a cause for concern.

Also, repetitive tasks are the things that are easiest to forget... Did I take my baby aspirin this morning... Where are my darn car keys...

Well Steve to tell you the truth, have you ever had a Head Injury or a Traumatic Injury. I had both at the age of 42 and was having "BAD" Tremors for a while and eventually they went away. That's when my Doc told me I was Showing Early Signs of Parkinson's Decease and Alzheimer's not a very good feeling having always been very athletic also, but I've learn to live with it and now they're finally getting some Very Good medicine's available for it I now use the Exceleron Patch and believe it or not it helps with a lot of my deficits.

Yes I have. Mind if I ask what your point is and how it'll help Mystica in her quest for feedback?

I would highly recommend anyone with cognitive disorders start mediating daily for at least 10 minutes. You can learn from another person or try online mindfulness meditations. There is a new report from Harvard indicating regular meditation can build gray matter in the brain.

Hi Mystica! Just want to tell you that I am familiar with your situation. My wife who has been working 8 years in a private company as a researcher delivered our first baby through a Ceasarean section 9 years ago. She was on leave from work for 2 months to allow healing of the surgical wounds as well as to take care of the baby. She noticed that she had a hard time recalling words and had to stop talking so she can think on the right words to say. We were informed by her gynecologist that it was one of the side effects of the anesthesia injected into her for the performed operation.

When my wife returned to work she was frustrated with her inability to recall things and words. The doctor advised her to do memory games and answer crossword puzzles. She was also told to read more so she can learn or re-learn things. Working again can help her regain the normal function of her brain but it will take years to sharpen her memory. It did help but not 100%. But it is better than staying home. You'll get rusty from unuse if you will just do household chores. Do things to challenge your mind and ask for your husband's support.

Trust in yourself that you can do it! If my wife can, so can you!

Hi Mystica,
I've been dealing with similar symptoms too and it is very scary. I am only 35 and find it very frightening and frustrating that I can't communicate or function in the way that a person my age should be able to. I am trying to figure out what exactly is going on that is causing the problems but no answers yet. I feel for you because I can relate to how you are feeling.
