confused  Sometimes , it is hard to tell why so much emotion goes through my mind on a daily excursion.I feel as though my mind is fast tracking and getting ahead of itself constantly.Im forgetting and missplacing items , like keys and chores im supposed to do, although they come back to me after awhile. with my job it makes it double hard because i have to remember things that lead to a decision that must be made immediatley. Now i have found out from my doctors that ever scince i was around 7 years old and after they discovered that i fell from a moving car when very young, could be the reason why these thiings are happenening at an increasing rate, because i first thought alzheimers, but then i recalled that this has been going on all of my life. And lol i have the head and face scars to prove my point of where i struck the pavement, and my doctors want to do another cat on my brain to see if this is why im getting worse, and if there is something that can be done. So if anyone out there has had similar or are going through something like this now , please let me know if any treatment has been precribed for you , thank you all for being here for me allthough i know its hrd to understand me sometimes i know that it takes courage and pulling ones self along to overcome obstacles that seem so high as it would be easier to just let go and, succumb to in inner feeling of despair.       sad racer x

Dear racer x,
Again Welcome and I am sorry you are having issues.  Head trauma can lead to many things and I hope that you are seeing a very good neurologist for your problems.
I know this must way heavy on your mind worrying about what is going on but I am glad to hear you are seeking professonal help and please try not to get caught up in the "What ifs".  Sometimes it take CT Scans and MRI's and EEGs plus other tests to find a problem so just take it one step at a time.

Please know you have come to a place of caring and support.  We are here for you.

I think it is very normal to do things like this. I am always forgetting and even my sister inlaw and she is younger than I am. I am 22. I will be thinking of something and it might take a minute and I forget completely and later it will come back to me. Or I will go in a room for something and then forget what it was. Also stress and anxiety can cause this. We are so busy with our everyday lives and taqking care of our responsibilities that things like this happen. I bet you wont even realize how many people out there experience this and not think nothing of it. You will be just fine. I like to write things down just incase I do forget. I hope you feel better. Try to relax and like skitt says dont always dwell on the what ifs.

I tend to forget things going from one room to the other

I believe with me it is all the added stress and family bull that is causing me more stres than I need for sure plus I have been very ill with pnuemonia for last while
